So i have been blessed with a baby who sleeps through the night. He's 3 months, sleeps in his own crib about a foot away from my bed, and sleeps for 7-9 hours in a stretch without waking up to nurse. I have been enjoying getting good sleep, but when he does wake me up i am really engorged and he only takes one breast, so i pump after hes done. I sometimes pump 6-8 oz from the breast he didnt take, and 2-3 from the breast he did!
My question is will this hurt my supply or will my body just learn that he needs more during the day than at night? He just started sleeping this long regularly pretty recently.
Ive had a bit of an oversupply so if it goes down a little bit thats okay, i just dont want to cause a huge decrease (i like having an oversupply, i save some and give some away)
