Sonogirl: Is it safe to sleep with them in your arms? I assume you would't do it if it wasn't... I just have been operating under the assumption that if you do that there's a chance that their heads can flop over or get into a bad position otherwise while you're asleep. Kind of like in the carseat- how they warn you not to leave them in it too long because their heads flop over and it can obstruct their airway.
What I have been doing now is letting him fall asleep latched on in sidelying position then waiting till he spits it out (then moves his head so my breast is his pillow!) and staying awake till he's in a deep enough sleep to move him to his back, propped up on me. Sometimes this works but more often than not, moving wakes him up. I generally have to do this several times till he stays asleep. But it's only a matter of time till I'm so tired I fall asleep before moving him.
