(sorry this might be long and rambly)
I just had my first baby and she is 2.5 weeks old. I had a MAJOR oversupply when my milk came in. I would be sitting crying next to my crying baby and leaking/spraying all over, soaking everything near us, and we'd both be frustrated. But anyway, I started EP-ing about a week ago and have been able to go straight to pumping every 6 hours and getting 4-6 oz on each side, each pumping! Although pumping every 6 hours is working pretty well, LO is starting to change her sleeping habits to sleep later than my first morning pumping time (as in, she wants to sleep until 7 and my first pumping time is at 5:30. And she DOES NOT like being woken up or moved to her crib at this time in the morning ) I would like to go to pumping 2 times a day and then nursing her at night so we can both get more sleep and have our sleep more synchronized (and stop driving daddy nuts with our fussiness in the morning).
I guess my question is: If I try to go back to nursing at night, will I still have to deal with one breast leaking all over our bed again while she is nursing on the other side? If it does, will it eventually adjust and stop leaking? Has anyone had success with pumping and nursing combination?
Right now I pump at 5:30 am, 11:30 am, 5:30 pm, and 11:30 pm. I am wanting to go to nursing through the night up til her 7 am wake up and then pump at 11:30 am and 5:30 pm.
I hope that makes sense!! Major lack of sleep and coffee deprivation!
