I've never nursed, but Lucas has fallen asleep having a bottle before. For us, if he did fall asleep, I'd see how much he ate and if it was a lot, then I'd just take him to bed. If it wasn't too much and I know he'd be awake within 20 minutes because he'd be hungry again; I'd gently stroke his face or rock him a bit to get him to open his eyes and finish his bottle. If you need to wake your baby from sleeping during a feeding, just do it softly and gently so as not to startle them and scare them
