My three week old baby boy won't stay awake long enough to fully satisfy himself. He will usually eat about one and half oz and then fall into a deeeeeeep sleep - sometimes I can manage to get another half ounce down but that is it. Then an hour later he wakes hungry again becuase he did not eat enough an hour earlier. I know he will eat more if he is awake because on the rare occasion that he will stay awake for a feeding, for example this morning at 4:00 a.m. he dried out a three ounce bottle and then at another two ounces that my hubby made as he was about to finish the three ounce bottle - he was awake the entire time - why? I don't know. So . . . . any tips on keeping him awake so he will eat to satisfaction?
