    Default Nursing and sleeping

    Up until about a week ago, my DS would not nurse to sleep, ever. Now he does it all the time! I'm totally okay with that, but he continues to nurse while he is asleep and every once in a while I will let down again and it wakes him up, and he doesn't get into a good sleep. Is there anything I should do about it? Or just let him eat sleep eat sleep like that. He mostly does it in the early afternoon time.

    infants consume a great many calories while "sleep-nursing"
    your LO will only nurse as long as he needs to. So even if a second let down wakes him up, he probably needed the calories.
