Does anyone else have a lazy nurser on their hands? My little man is constantly falling asleep on the breast and I cannot for the life of me wake him up. So i let him nurse for 10 min, fall asleep and wake back up 15 min later to feed. We still get several full long constant feedings in the day, but sometimes he just wants to nip and sleep for a few hours. And you know what? I'm ok with that. I feel like if he wants to spend extra time with mommy, i should give that time to him. But, does anyone have tips for keeping him awake when I dont have time to let him be lazy?
This is a really great article on different ways to try and wake your baby to continue the nursing session. Good Luck and Congrats on the new one!!!

Undressing him so he's a bit cold and switching sides when he starts to slow down can help. Changing or checking a diaper can get them to wake up and finish their meal too.
