This is our 3rd baby, second that I have been able to nurse of any amount of time. She is just 4 months old and is nursing every 2-3 hours around the clock.
During the night she often will nurse and then wake up an hour later and nurse for a few minutes. Some nights she will wake up 4-5 times and repeat this pattern. This is a new occurrence in the last month. She was only getting up 2 times a night for the first 3 months.
Typically she will only nurse on one side. I try to have her nurse on both sides to fill up more but she really won't.
My breasts rarely feel full. I remember this with our 2nd baby as well. I was full in the beginning but after a few months I never felt full. I also seldom actually feel when let down occurs.
I have no problem nursing her on demand and I enjoy the middle of the night feedings. But not all 5 of them!!!
Is is my supply? How can I tell?
I also just got an IUD and my period for the first time...could either of those be a factor?
