Struggle between Food and Sleep
Hi Helen

Rasmus is seven months old, and we experience a real struggle between food and sleep. He has started to need both breasts at each feed.

The problem is that he often sleeps while breastfeeding from one breast. I try to wake him up, but very often without any luck; consequently, he gets hungry after one hour, which is very tiresome, especially during the night!

What do I do - how do I make him stay awake ensuring he gets enough to eat? I stroke and tickle his hands and cheeks, but without any luck.

Best regards
Lene
