    Default Block feeding for part of the day?

    I have been block feeding in ~4 hour blocks for almost 2 weeks. My supply has definitely decreased to a more manageable level but I still have too much milk in the mornings. (DD sleeps from 9 pm until 5 am about half the time). However I find that I don't have enough milk in the evenings to keep up with her cluster feedings if I block feed. Will I just confuse my body if I block feed in the mornings and afternoons and then switch sides with every feeding in the late afternoon/evenings?

    It sounds like you are listening to your body and your baby to come up with a feeding pattern that works best for you. If you need to block feed in the morning and cluster feed in the afternoon, then go ahead and do it .
