    As long as you are feeding on demand during the day, there's no need to pump. Your body is blessed with a sensitive internal clock which can be trained to make the right amount of milk for a given time of day. More when it's required, less when it's not. The nighttime fullness should pass in time as your body detects that it is not needed.

    You should be fine. I would keep an eye on wet diapers for a week or two to make sure she is having 5-6 per day, just to be on the safe side.

    Enjoy the full night sleep for yourself! Your body will adjust. My son started sleeping through the night at 5 months. I did pump occasionally if I woke up and he didn't, just to be comfortable. He's 7 months now and even though I have plenty of milk I don't wake up engorged anymore.
