My exclusively breast fed 6 month old has only slept through the night once or twice, but as it becomes a more regular thing, I'm wondering how my supply will be affected? Do I need to get up and pump? Or will my body adjust to not become engorged at night and still produce enough milk throughout the day?

Hi thank you for your email and questions concerning maintaining a milk supply when baby sleeps through the night (usually defined as 5 hours).
