Tonight is the first day I am are trying the pat/pu-pd method with my 9 month old.
I am still having supply issues (very complicated) and I need to BF until around 14 months for medical reasons. For the past month or two, he has been waking up around 5-7 times and I made the mistake to get him used to feeding a lot then. He was teething and always distracted during the day so he gets a lot of his feed during the night.
There is no way for me to increase his intake during the day, so I need the night feeds to at least get to 30oz (I pump too and know how much I make).
Tonight, he woke up around 140am and I decided to nurse him. I was okay with a feeding around the 2am mark. He woke again at 4am and I did the PU/PD and didn't feed. I pumped instead because I was engorged and was awake anyway...but I'm not too sure what to do since I don't want my supply to decrease but I dont want to mess up the sleep progress.
Should I feed again or keep it to one feed? How should I schedule this?
Also, at the 4am waking, he cried but after a while, I left him to self soothe as he was settling. Does this mean he didn't really need a feed?
