My breast become very full late night/early morning hours but in the evenings I feel very deflated and that's when he wants to nurse the most....he seems to nurse every hr after 4pm and store up for a 5-7hrs stretch of sleep after 9pm. I know it's natural to be more full in the mornings but will my body adjust and fill up more in the evenings? He always only nurses 1 breast at a time and only for about 8 to 10min. He also is colicky crying from 6 to 9pm.
He has plenty wet/dirty diapers so I think he is getting enough but what if the reason he is fussy in the evenings and nurses every hr is bc each feeding isn't satisfying?
Also if he sleeps from 9pm to 4am can this cause my supply to decrease? should I wake and pump...that will suck bc I need the sleep after dealing w hrs of colic.
He is 6wks old and has pretty much always slept 1 5hr stretch at night but now it's increasing. I don't want it to hurt my supply. I am paranoid about my supply bc with my 1st son my milk never came in and I was devastated and I am so happy I am able to nurse this guy.
When is a average age when they start 2 boobing it or is it diff for each baby? He's a big guy was 10.4 at birth and prob about 14lbs now. You'd think he'd need more than 1 breast for 10min.
1 reason I started only offering 1 breast was for the colic in case he was getting to much foremilk. and I'll block feed offering the same breast for a 2hr period in the evenings. Is there anything else I shld or shldnt be doing?
