Lazy Latch and side feeding?

DS has a great latch, and eats super well, but always falls asleep at the boob. I can side feed (laying down) during the day when I'm awake, because I can monitor him. But if I do it at night, I fall asleep and so does he, and he goes into lazy latch mode and uses me as a pacifier and I'm sore all the next day. Does this ever get any better? DS is almost 4 weeks.

Mama I think it just depends my son at 17 months still does this, your breasts I think probley just get use to it .If you dont like him doing you , you should remove him from the breast before he gets to that point .

PS your from my home town!

That is why I can't co-sleep. lol, I have to get up and nurse then and then get them back to bed becasue I always fall asleep in the middle of the night wihle nursing, if I say in bed.

Good luck
