July 20, 2001, Newsletter Issue #30: Breast Feeding The Sleepy Baby

Tip of the Week

If you find that your baby tends to drift off to sleep at the breast try gently nudging or tickling his feet and chin to remind him about the task at hand.
Some people also find that changing your baby`s diaper can help if he is very sleepy. The fresh air on his bottom often helps.
Remember- many babies are just efficient feeders (my daughter is one... she has never fed for more than 10 minutes at a time and gained weight very well). Only push your baby to feed for longer periods of time than what comes naturally if its weight gain is not satisfactory.
