Talking baby is 7 days old, question

My baby is nursing great, but I have a couple of " is this normal" questions

When he latches on, a couple seconds later I let down and the baby gulps. After about 5 minutes, he doesn't suck deeply anymore and starts playing around mostly with a couple deep sucks afterwards. Will he be getting the fatty milk if he doesn't latch and suck deeply for long periods of time?

He has plenty of poopy and pee diapers ( yellow seedy appearance).

He also LOVES to fall asleep at the breast, but I let him stay on as long as possible-- but goly, after 20-30 minutes of hardly any progress, I've got to get up ( I've got 2 other kids!)
