MY SON USED TO FALL ASLEEP DURING FEEDING SO I WOULD NOT GET THE CHANCE TO BURP HIM RIGHT AWAY. THE DOCTOR SHOWED ME A TRICK IN WHERE YOU SLOWLY, AND SOFTLY ROLL THE BOTTLE ONCE IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND AS YOU FEED THE BABY(ONLY IF YOU SEE HE IS NODDING OFF). THIS CAUSES THE NIPPLE TO ROLL INSIDE HIS MOUTH AND ALERT HIM AS HE IS NODDING OFF. IT WILL KEEP HIM AWAKE TILL YOU BURP HIM.YOU CAN ALSO JUST LIGHTLY TICKLE THE BABY ON HIS CHEEK OR FEET AS YOU SEE HIM FALLING ASLEEP. IT IS SIMPLE BUT IT WORKS. I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD. GBY HOPE THIS HELPS.
