Two month old sleeping!
My 2 month old has been sleeping 9 hours per night for a few days now. I'm exclusively Breastfeeding so when I wake up in the morning my breasts a really full. Is it healthy for her to sleep that long?? Also, will my supply go down because of how long she goes without nursing?

Your supply will adjust as needed. As long as there's enough wet/poopy diapers and baby is otherwise happy/healthy then I'm totally jealous. ;)

Lol! Thank you :-) When she sleeps that long, in the morning her diaper isn't very wet. But during the day I change her every 2 hours and it's soaked.

Re: Two month old sleeping!
All my babies started sleeping longer. DD has been going all night for about a month most nights. Then she will have a spell where she wakes back up. I have noticed that when she does sleep all night then she eats every 2 hours most of the day.

I WOH so I pump about an hour before she wakes up and that is bonus milk for my freezer. In the last month I am less full inthe AM. I am still pumping the same amount but just not that super hard/sore feeling.

Aslo-- I try to pump off a little bit or hand express some so she can latch on better and the milk doesnt come out quite so fast. She sputters and chokes if I forget.

You are so lucky! I'm up 2x/night (for an hour + each time)

Re: Two month old sleeping!
My daughter was a night nurser. I went back to work at 6 weeks and did a lot of pumping so she missed me in the evenings. My son (who is 2.5 months old) is a better sleeper. I didn't go back to work until this week and we had a better start to our nursing relationship (I knew better the 2nd time around). He also cluster feeds like crazy before bed. I still get up once a night and my boobs usually wake me up because I am full or I hear him crying and I start leaking in my sleep.

I know sleep cycles happen and change things. But I am happy for now :)
