Breastfeeding

Sleepy nursing

DD keeps falling asleep at the breast.  The ped was concerned about her not gaining so I worked really hard feeding her and she gained 9 oz this week.  But she's still so sleepy when I nurse her.  I change her diaper first, burp between sides, play with her hands, take her clothes off, etc. to keep her awake.  If I have to give her a bottle she eats it quickly and doesn't go to sleep.  It's so frustrating that breastfeeding keeps getting harder than bottle feeding!
