I need some advice about how to handle block feeding/ OS-OALD and sleeping through the night. Here's our background and I will try to be brief:
-LO just turned 8 weeks.
-Had pretty bad OS/OALD
-Started block feeding about 3 weeks ago and it has REALLY helped, although I still have a very strong LD in my right breast.
-Started with an 8 hour block, but now I just feed on one side for two feedings in a row and then the next side for 2 feedings in a row.
-LO feeds every 3 hours and currently has been on a 7, 10, 1 & 4 schedule.
-so basically it is right side at 7 and 10 and then left side at 1 & 4.
-LO started sleeping through the night 3 nights ago and missed the 1 am feeding the first night and then went all the way through to 5 am last night.
I am confused about how to continue my "block". I know I shouldn't worry about it, but I am concerned that between the block feeding and the missed night feeding my supply will go down too much. The first night I pumped, but not last night I went from 10pm to 5am without feeding, pumping or expresssing, is this bad? Also, since I apparently have more milk/LD in the right, should that be the breast that I let "miss" the feedings at night? Has anyone delt with this or have any advice?
