So these days ds is sleeping through the night, has been for quite a while actually. But sometimes he goes to bed at 7pm and doesnt wake up until 6am, and that's only because my older two are waking up and being loud! So were really not nursing at night at all. He'll get up around 6am nurse, go back to sleep with me and then we start the day around 8am. From 8am to 7pm he will eat every three hours, so maybe 4-5 times in a 24 hr period is all I nurse now. Is this going to be enough to keep going? I dont seem to have a problem MAKING the milk, I just want to be sure that the supply isnt going to crash because we are nursing much less than we were in the beginning.
I'm only nursing off one boob anyway,lol. I have never ever had a good supply in my left breast, no matter what I tried. The nipple is different and he never liked it, and it never felt "right" on that one, so we have always used the right super boob. Super boob can still hold 7ozs when it needs to, so the last month its been flying solo. LOL
So is my one lonesome super boob going to make it to a year fulltime, then continue the bedtime and morning nursing until hopefully 18 months?
I really really dont like pumping and thankfully I only have to maybe once a month (if I want to go somewhere for more than two hours or so without ds) but if a night pumping is needed, then I will do that for him.
