My son has weak latch and always falling asleep/getting bored

My son is one week old and he always have a very weak latch on my breast. Anyone else have this problem? It is very hard to properly stimulate the milk production. I have consulted with lactation consultant and latch seems ok, I keep waking him up if he falls asleep etc. The only way I can give him breast milk is to pump and bottle feed it, but I really want to directly breastfeed if I can

It is common for newborns fall sleep during feeding, not to worry too much Meantime pump every 2hrs to stimulate and build breast milk When he get older he will sleep lesser
