Pulling on nipple

My little guy (almost 2 wks old) has an amazing latch. But he always falls a sleep while feeding then jerks his head when he pulls off my nipple. I have tried to unlatch him before he pulls off but he gets mad and ends up not being finished nursing. WWYD? TIA

Re: Pulling on nipple

That is annoying!

I would probably deal with it if the alternative was a crying not asleep baby. It won't last forever, most things seem to change pretty quickly when they're that young.

Mine didnt do that at 2 weeks (I had to fight him to get my boob back) but he does now when something is interesting and he tries to take my nipple with him when he turns his head. It used to hurt but I've toughened up to the point it's annoying but not painful.

I have been Unlatching him before he starts falling a sleep. Then once he calms down I allow him to re latch. Once we finish up, I unlatch him again and he is a lot calmer.
My nips are a tad sore. Been using tons of nipple balm but ugh!
