Any tips for nursing a sleepy baby? My son is now 3 weeks old but still very sleepy. The nicu stay has made bfing difficult as we didn't get established at the start and he's used to a bottle. We just started doing all feeds at breast with some expressed milk at end if he's still hungry 2 days ago but he struggles to stay awake. If he can go 5-6 mins straight per side he drains then but because he's so sleepy it's taking 30mins plus right now then me pumping for 15 mins after to make sure I'm drained. He was also jaundiced but that seems to be mostly cleared as his eyes are finally looking white again.
