I think while many breastfed babies do STTN, I think its important to remember that breast milk digests in about 90 minutes so your BF baby will probably want to feed more often than a formula fed one. DD never slept so I never really had to deal with those kinds of issues but on the rare occasion she did sleep for say 4-5 hours I would just hand express to relieve some of the engorgement. If you pump in the middle of the night your telling your body to keep making milk at that time and your likely to become engorged if baby sleeps through that feed again and you don't want to pump. DD probably fed every 30 mins -2 hrs for about 6 months and from 6 months to 12 months probably between 1-4hrs (day or night)
