Is it normal for a 4 week old to make a noise as if he is clearing his throat?

Recently, my 4 week old son is clearing his throat it seems after each feeding and
has eaten less at every 2hour feeding. When I go to hold him he quiets down and falls to sleep but as soon as I put him down he awakens and does this grounting noise. Is this all normal? I thought he would eat more and sleep a little more by this stage...

  • IS he still gaining weight? Is he still using the same number of diapers everyday? Call his pediatrician. I would be a little worried.
