Sleepy 4 month old bottle feeder

Any tips on how to keep a 4 month old awake for all her feeds? She falls asleep half way through and is impossible to wake up. Its not that she needs sleep as does 10 hours at night and 3 naps a day. As soon as you take bottle out her mouth she wakes up and starts rooting, crying etc so just have to sit there taking it out, putting back in for over an hour! Driving me nuts!

My LO did this early on. I would stop the feed and put him down on the floor. ( only in the house obviouslywink) leave him there for a few seconds or a minute and he would wake up properly and continue the rest of his feed.
