Im having a few issues overnight as my exclusively breastfed lil one has started sleeping through the night. Because of this im finding im either waking up in the early hours completely soaked through (numerous breastpads, tops, muslins etc), so engorged that im in agony or both. My little one will feed before bed until around 8-8.30. I dont know whether to express during the night to ease the discomfort or whether this will encourage more milk production. Ive hand expressed a bit off before now just to ease the discomfort a litttle but it soon starts hurting again. During the day i have no problems at all.
