    Cool washcloth on the forehead or feet?

    I change his diaper, sometimes have to take his clothes off so that he's a little chillier during the feeding. Walk your fingers up and down the baby's back. Sometimes I blow on his face if he falls back asleep.


    Good luck! It's not easy when they can be so sleepy!

    how old is your baby?? how much does the baby feed during they day?? if they are old enough, you probably dont have to wake them if they are eating great during the day. Unless your baby is a newborn?

    Tickle his feet or his neck. Tap his chin or his neck right below his chin. Walk your fingers up and down his spine. Lift his arm and gently jiggle it (this always works for me, like magic!). Strip him down to the diaper and give him skin-to-skin contact. If he still won't wake up, give him a little while longer to snooze and then try again. HTH!
    I love my kids. I care for them accordingly. What more can I say?
