Not sure if this is the right place to post this question or not, but I struggled so much with my first (we weaned at 3 months) with under supply, but with baby 2 (DS) I seem to be the complete opposite. I would have killed for this problem with DD.
Well a happy occurrence happened in our house this morning. DS went to bed at 11:30pm and woke at 6:30am (he is 7 weeks old). Also painful. I woke with 2 bowling balls attached to my chest. I pumped and fed at the same time when I woke like usual. I have been doing this for a stash for going back to work/emergencies/maybe someday DH and I will go on a date or something... Then when he was done nursing on the one side I pumped the rest out. I pumped 12oz!!!
If this sleep pattern becomes a pattern, what should I do? Try not to pump in the morning? Should I wake up in the night to pump so that I am not engorged in the morning? I think that will make the problem worse. Or will my body just figure this out? I kind of liked pumping an entire work days worth of milk in one setting, but I think this is probably not a good thing entirely.
It was such a struggle with DD that an oversupply is almost a relief, but I'd really just like to make enough. (I probably would have wanted to punch someone like me for saying something like this with my first)
