Ghhh this is driving me crazy. At night Autumn won't stay awake. I have to fight wi5h her to eat, cold rag, taking clothes off, changing diaper won't work.,, she will fall bqck asleep. Im thinking of just letting her sleep at night since she will nurse for 10 minutes total out of trying for over an hour. What do you ladies do to keep your kids awake?

Perhaps weight gain issues? I can't think of any reasons apart from that.

I'm not sure what else you can do to keep her awake. Have you tried turning the light on?

Op is working hard on reversing some serious weight gain issues.

Op, we would undress ds and pump his arms and legs up & down. We called him my manual pump. LOL.

I rad somewhere babies have a pressure point on their hand at makes them suck, but I don't know where it is.  Perhaps research that?  Ds would always fall asleep and nothing, I mean NOTHING would work.  I ended up eping for him for over a year.  Good luck!

Put pressure under the bottom of her chin. Firmly. It's what the NICU had me do when my preemie had issues waking up to eat. And I think it would be a very bad idea to let her sttn with her issues.
