Re: Terrified of Low Supply - New Here: HELP!
Don't stress, your body will adjust to him sleeping longer at night and not make as much during that time of day. Your bady is an amazing thing, this should not affect your daytime supply!
Also, it is normal not to get much milk if you are pumping between feedings, your dc is much more effective than any pump (even hospital grade). Once you are at work and dc isn't nursing you will be pumping more. Every 4 hours should be ok to maintain your supply, just be sure to finish each breast (15-20 min on each breast) or a few min after milk stops. You are doing a wonderful job. If you are wanting to build a back up supply you could always wake up 30 min before baby and pump (you have the most milk in morning) and don't worry, you won't be short changing his breakfast, when he nurses you body will make more, as much as he needs/wants. You could also pump one side while he nurses the other or pump before you go to bed.
