Re: New Mom - 3 Day Old!
My son always fell asleep at the breast too. I did everything I could to annoy him to keep him awake - undressing, tickling, blowing on his face, changing his diaper between sides, etc.
Is your son a little jaundice? Mine was, just a tad, which contributed to the sleepiness. I ended up pumping for 2 months, which sucked. What you're doing doesnt sound like it will cause nipple confusion... but try to have your wife put him to the breast more - instead of pumping. Good luck!
