My newborn does it all the time, when I was at hospital the midwives would insist I change his nappy even if it wasn't dirty and keep him unclothed just to wake him up a little.
If I'm not happy with the amount of time he's been feeding for I give his chin a soft nudge while attached and that usually sets him off again. If not I gently pull my nipple away and if it pops right out I know he doesn't want more, if he sucks it straight back in then I keep nudging him to remind him he's on the nipple.
I keep him clothed... in my opinion it's getting too chilly at night to have him just in a nappy.

Those feeds I would usually do a nappy change, so that tended to get them awake and somewhat alert. Failing that a little soft stroke on their cheek usually worked to.

My 15 month old still does that sometimes
It's normal, the hormones realised when breastfeeding are designed to make mum and baby both quite sleepy. Enjoy it and if in doubt switch sides.

A slight stroke under his chin might help get him suckling again. Even if he is asleep he will still feed this way.
