My 2.5 month old is sleeping for 6-7 hour stretches at night . Do you’ll pump in between or wait it out till the baby is awake? Wondering, if not pumping in between affects milk supply . TIA.

Your body will calibrate to her needs as they change. If you’re looking to build a freezer stash, you can pump after she nurses in the morning. This will teach your body that it needs to produce a lot of milk at that time. I would prioritize your sleep, and not wake up to pump. Hakaa is also a great tool to build a freezer stash.

This! Built myself a nice little stash on just morning feed haakaa.

I needed to feed or pump every three hours, 24/7. If I dropped a feed or pump my 24-hr yield tanked. Supply is different with everyone.

I just came here to say what a lucky lady you are. Mine is 3.5 YEARS and still can't do a stretch longer than 5 hrs. I'd say enjoy the sleep. Pump right before I go sleeping and that's it. Your supply will regulate with the routine your baby dictates.

I agree about pumping right before bed and then getting as much sleep as possible.

M1 - a big hack, once they’re over 10lb, is to try get their calories in early in the day so that they learn to expect big feeds in the morning. We were very patient with all the morning feeds to try encourage them to take as many calories morning and afternoon as possible, which helped them sleep through the night. I’m not sure how the food-biology worked 🤷‍♀️

Do not wake up the baby to feed. Let him wake up on his own. You can pump and store it for 4 hours at room temperature and in fridge for upto four days.

It depends on the person. With my first I had a rather large storage capacity so I could sleep through and just feed/pump in the morning without it impacting supply but I know others who have to wake to pump if they don't want their supply to drop. I'd say try sleeping through a few days and if you feel your supply starts dropping then think about adding a middle of the night pump in.

I think a 5-6 hour stretch is probably ok to take, but see how your supply responds. If you notice a dip, put the extra middle of the night pump back in.

My wife used to dream feed in the middle to get the supply flowing but otherwise you should be alright

Hi no advice on pumping sorry my LO is only 7 weeks. I am wondering if there was anything you did to encourage these longer sleep periods. Struggling a bit since LO only sleeps about 2 hours at a time.

M1 … agree with sm1.
In the mornings, Baby and I soak in some indirect sunlight. Also, try to maximise feed during morning and afternoon sessions. I read that when the baby is trying to digest food, then baby is more likely to stay awake. Not sure if any of the above mentioned actually helped. But, these are some of things I do on daily basis.
