Lately Walter has been falling asleep at the boob. He used to unlatch when he was done and then fall right to sleep, but now he stays latched and sucks a few times every once in awhile. If I slowly pull my boob back a little, he'll suck again a few times. I never make him stop before he's done but if I let him do this he'll go on all night. Is he still eating when he does this or is it okay for me to unlatch him? I don't know what to do!

Sounds like he is just comfort nursing. Just carefully break suction with your finger. When my LO does this I cup the breast and gently compress, which simulates another let-down. If he is still hungry he will nurse, if not this usually makes him break off. If you use a pacifier, you can use it after he is done nursing and just wants to suck. GL

Same thing here. Usually, she does those slow sucks for a while and when I feel she is done, sometimes she'll just stop sucking, I'll gently pull away. If she is still too awake to realize, she'll wake up a little and ask for it again.

Ditto all the other ladies. Sounds like comfort sucking. Lilly does it a lot.
