You can always try a dreamfeed to help with supply and also maybe let you sleep a little later in the morning This is a well known trick among those of us that work to create predictable routine and great sleep habits in our breastfed babies.
I hear of this all the time. I've been trying it with this baby (same age as OP, 3 months on the 12th). Mine won't wake up. Once he is asleep, he will NOT wake up to nurse no matter how hard I try. It's frustrating because I always hear people talking about it, but I can't make it happen.
