    The only thing you can count on the first year, is that everything will change every 4-6weeks.

    oh I forgot to add one thing.

    For the past 3 days, she has been sleeping 8 hrs continuously through the night. My breasts were so engorged the first night but I did not pump ( cos I was trying to correct my oversupply and regulate my milk supply). They no longer became engorged with the subsequent 2 nights, and infact became very soft, and still is.

    Did this in a way cause my supply to drop rapidly? But I thought that baby is the best regulator, so I did not pump anything out during her 8 hr sleep.

    I also let her sleep throughout the 8 hrs cos I read that we shld let babies sleep as much as they like if they are above 5kg,

    It sounds like you are managing to correct your over supply and are beginning to regulate. Stop worrying. Watch Diaper output. 6-8 wets in a 24hour period and at least one bowel movement a week means every thing is fine.
