Lately, my ds is sleeping alllll the way through the night, like 10-11 hours w/o waking. I know I know, poor me, right?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering something...<br><br>
When he sleeps that long w/o nursing, I wake very very engorged and in pain. I have to get up and pump. My question is, do our breasts produce milk at the same rate during the day as at night? Or will my breasts figure out not to produce as much at night?<br><br>
My dd didn't stop nighttime nursing until she was well into solids, around 8 months, and I wasn't nursing as often as I am currently nursing ds.<br><br>
when will I stop waking in pain and needing to pump?

The first couple times DD slept through the night, I woke up with milk everywhere and very hard sore breasts. After the first few nights I was no longer engorged or leaky when I woke up.<br><br>
Of course, DD no longer sleeps through the night and nurses at least twice a night. My breasts have readjusted for that.<br><br>
Your body will figure it out and adjust for whatever your DC decides to do.

Your body will adjust, I would just pump a little to in the morning to help. Maybe the sleep will stay, maybe it will go. Until you find out I'm sure you will be doing more nursing during the day!
