If she's gaining weight appropriately, eliminating appropriately, etc., I'd let her let you know when she's hungry. My experience is that DD does much better with longer naps than with short...

My body seems to regulate within a few days whenever DD starts sleeping longer stretches. I don't think there's a drop in supply, or else she'd be starving to death by now, considering she now only...

I know what you mean--we're currently just up once a night, but if she sleeps longer than usual, I'm usually lying there awake in bed waiting for her to wake up. So annoying!

My DD is almost always super sweaty when she's done eating. I'll have to pay attention to see if it's different at different times of day. BFing must be hard work for them!
