    SA, what's your feeding like during the day? I have no idea if it's a coincidence, but the day I implemented more of a feeding schedule (Gina ford's) was the first night he went back to waking only twice and I've noticed since that my breasts are a lot fuller before a feed. Before I was constantly topping him up, worried he was hungry but now I realize in doing that he was never hungry enough to take a proper full feed. Now he's feeding longer and beforehand my breasts are definitely fuller than they used to be so I think he's having much bigger feeds that are keeping him fuller longer. It may be a coincidence, maybe he was coming out of the bad sleeping anyways, but maybe worth a try?

    I've just been lying here wondering if I have enough milk ..

    My boobs have been so empty for ages now. He's never fed more than 5 mins and I only seem to have one letdown per feed, 2 if I'm lucky, but the 2nd lasts about 20 seconds if that.

    During the day he doesn't seem hungry, I don't keep track of the times I feed him but it's never more than 2 -2.5 hrs between feeds and he used to only need one boob but occasionally during the days lately I've been giving him both.

    Maybe I don't have enough milk...

    Edit

    Lately his feeds seem shorter than 5 mins

    I also don't even need breast pads anymore... Haven't used them in about 2 months!

    DS has always been fast, so when I say he's taking longer it's only by a few minutes, so don't let time be too much of a judge. I rarely had leaky breasts before and now they're leaking much more often. Also before he was always having both breasts and now sometimes he'll only have one, obviously because it's fuller. When I get home I'll send the times over.

    Feed times:
    7am (try not to feed after 7.45 so he's not put off his next feed)

    11am (try not to feed after 11.30)

    2.15/2.30 (right now I tend to be more 2/2.15) (try not to feed after 3.15)

    6/6.15 bedtime feed (you can split this one and do one breast at 5pm if needed but if he can wait until 6 then do that. If you do one breast at 5pm offer that breast first at 6 to make sure he's emptied it).
