My son is just starting to sleep through the night, but we still have nights where he wakes up. The night before he woke at 4am and then again at 8. Both times I was very full. Then last night before bed, I fed him around 12am and he slept until 7, but when I woke up I didn't feel very full at all.

Is there a problem? Or is this normal? I always get worried that my milk production is slowing down.

Thats totallynormal Your body is jsut adjusting to the longer sleeping times

And btw, 7 hours is great!!!!!! But of course, dont be surprised if that changes during growth spurts Even then, your milk will keep up And eventaully you wont feel full at all anymore, and thats normal too

Yeah and I would say about now is the time when you wont be painfully engorged all the time anymore. Congrats

ps: My daughter is 4 months old now and I don't even have to wear breast pads anymore, so maybe you will be lucky like me and your supply will even out and no more booby pads

Oh good, I'm glad it's normal
I really never needed breast pads. I've only had 1 episode of leaking and that was the first night he slept through the night.
