Re: BF and sleep
There are 3 ways to deal with nighttime engorgement when the baby starts sleeping longer periods:
1. Tough it out- eventually your body will get the message and start making less during the hours when your baby is sleeping.
2. Express just enough for comfort. Your supply will decrease at a slightly slower pace than if you go with option 1.
3. Wake up and pump. Your supply will not decrease, you'll get lots of extra milk for your freezer stash, but you'll lose out on sleep.
