my son just turned 4 mo and suddenly started sleeping through the night (9-11 hours). I thought the transition would be more gradual, but he has done it 3 nights straight! naturally, my breasts are HUGE when he wakes up and have been leaking...
should I get up in the night to pump?
I am worried that going so long without feeding will lead to lower milk production in general, or that it will lead to lower quality milk (less fat).
or, will my body learn to accomodate this new change with a little more time and just produce less milk during the night?
