Q&A: OK to Wake Baby to Eat?
You betcha. Don’t feel bad about waking baby when you need relief. You have just as much of a right to wake him as he has to wake you. If you would rather leave him sleeping though, you can pump a small amount to ease the pressure. Don’t worry: This adjustment period is temporary. Your body will soon adapt to baby’s new sleeping habits, and you won’t feel so engorged at night.
