I'm sorry if this is an obvious question but I need to know what to do about it.
Here's some background:
My one month old has gotten into this pattern where he'll nurse and fall asleep very fast at my breast. He seems more awake in the evenings (though sleeps through the night) since he's fussier and we're going through cluster feeding. I understand that at his stage one month olds sleep a lot and all but it just seems to me like he's not nursing enough because he doesn't empty my breasts. He just drinks whatever is enough for him and falls asleep. I burp him and he wakes up then goes right back to sleep. If I offer him my breast again after his burp he'll take it just for comfort and sleep or he'll refuse it and get angry and cry until I leave him alone.
I know the sensible thing to do would be to pump and this brings me to my question. Should I leave my milk alone for the next time he wakes up, or should I pump to let my body know to make more but then run the risk of him waking up when my breasts are still trying to get full again? Not sure what to do and I really want to keep up my milk supply especially because the medication I take though safe for breastfeeding don't allow me to take any herbs that could react with it. Any advice would be highly appreciated. TIA
