My daughter is 7 weeks. When my boyfriend and i are both in bed she sleeps in her crib but once he heads to work i take her to bed with me and breastfeed her in the side laying position i try to stay awake so i can burp her after she eats but about half the time i fall asleep until she fusses because she is hungry again. i always wake to her sound or searching for the nipple but once she is latched it becomes way more difficult to stay awake. is it bad if she isn't always burped directly after she eats? should i feed her sitting up so i don't fall asleep?
