My little fella is quite a light sleeper, but unfortunately that does not apply when he falls asleep at the breast! And since that happens quite often, i always end up dealing with half-finished feedings and a never-really-satisfied baby.
The usual pokes, tweaks, shakes and even switching sides don't work. Sometimes changing the angle in which he's lying, such as when i lean forward or to the side, will wake him sufficiently to take a grand total of 3 more suckles and one swallow, before he drifts right back to sleep. Massaging the breast achieves roughly the same effect.
i'm out of ideas! Anyone has any tricks that you use on your sleepy baby?
