My 2 month old is sleeping longer and longer at night and eating less during his awake times at night.. I wake up sooo full it's literally painful. Should I get up at night and pump or should I just let it happen? Someone told me my supply would adj but not sure if that info is true.. Any advice?

You just need to wait for your body to adjust.

This happened to me too...still waiting for my body to adjust, lol.  So, in that waiting period, I have to pump otherwise I get a headache from the fullness.

My little one will not make up his mind! Some nights he wants to sleep at the breast and snack all night. Then the next he wants to sleep by himself and not eat at all! Last night he slept 6 hours and my left breast was sooo full while my right one (which is the side I was sleeping on) sprayed through the nursing pad socking through my bra, shirt , a towel, and  sheet to my mattress! Next time I think I'll pump a little!
