My 8 week old DS2 has miraculously slept from 9pm til 6am the last two nights. (Amazing because my DS1 fed twice overnight til 11 months of age)! He's feeding 2-3 hourly during the day (6-7 feeds) and so far has gained weight like a champ.
My boobs have been rock hard and really painful in the morning. I'm worried if he continues to sleep so much overnight that my milk supply will be affected. Some websites suggest waking to pump overnight if your baby sleeps through at this age! This seems insane to me and I hope it's not necessary.
Does anyone know if this will adversely affect my supply? Or did this happen to you?
P.S. if it matters, I generally tend to have over supply of milk and successfully fed DS1 til 13 months.
