My 10 week old just started sleeping a good 7 hour stretch at night. I am exclusively breastfeeding with the exception of one bottle at night that my husband gives. My question is, should I get up during my son's night stretch and pump, or continue to pump after a mid-morning feeding (as i had been doing)? Ever since my baby has been sleeping this long at night, engorgement has been uncomfortable, and my baby has been spitting up a lot more when he feeds after that 7 hour stretch (it seems as if he is getting too much milk). Or should i just pump a little right before he gets up? My fear is that if i pump in the middle of the night, my body will begin to rely on pumping at that time when I would ideally like to get a bit more uninterrupted sleep.
Thanks for any advice!
