Re: STN and Supply?
how old is your lo? my ds is 9 months, at around 8 months he either wakes up one time a night around 3am or will sttn and wake around 5 (nurse and the go back to sleep until 7:30ish) i thought i was struggling with supply as I pump 3 times a week all day. i actually think my supply decreased b/c he is eating more solid food. i used to give him 4.5 oz bottles but now i give 3.5 and he is happy. i've stopped worrying about the amount i pump b/c he is happy with what i have when we are together and seems happy with the 3.5 oz bottles.
my breasts have been feeling less uncomfortable in the night, and i always have enough to satisfy him if he does wake at 3 am. i didn't want to wake him or pump, i'm just trying to follow his lead and not worry about the amount i am pumping as long as he is happy.
good luck to you and congrats on getting more sleep!
