    Default supply question

    I had supply issues in the past. N pulled and fussed at the breast. Now the supply issue is fixed and he no longer pulls or fusses but we are having horrible nights with N feeding 4 - 8 times through the night for the past month and a bit (hes 7 months old) where he only woke once for the first 5.5 months of his life.

    I hear him swallowing and a little "puddle" is left on my sheet (I feed him lying down at night)

    With those 2 things is it safe to assume his frequent night waking is NOT due to supply?

    have you tried to sit upright for a feeding at night to see if he gets more milk and wants you less?

    Hes not teething. I have looked for signs of teeth and nothing still. My first 3 babies were late teethers so I assume he will be too.

    I never thought my position played a role! I will try feeding sitting up tonight. I used to feed sitting and changed just around that time. I'd be so thrilled if that was the issue! *fingers crossed*
