Q:

my baby is 3 months old and he takes very long feeds because he goes to sleep while feeding.. any suggestions? he cried because he feels hungry when he wakes up



Do not let the baby nap at the breast. If you find him falling asleep unlatch him and latch again, rub his back tickle his feet and ears even wipe his face with a wet napkin. Massage your breast during a feed as that will initiate a small gush of milk a day could wake him up.
