Hi all I hope someone can help!

I am currently ebf my 3 month old DC and it has gone really well after a tough start. He was going for 6 hours without feeding at night regularly and I would always wake up full, sore and leaking on at least one side, but last night he went for 8 hours without feeding and when I finally fed him I didn't feel full at all and my clothes were no where near as wet as normal... So I feel like I shouldn't complain but is my supply somehow affected do you think?

Anyone experienced similar? I hope its just my body getting used to longer stretches between feeds but why on the exceptionally long night!?

Just your supply settling down to match what your baby wants rather than what the hormones think he wants. I think 12 weeks is about the right time. You should find from now on the milk is just there when he asks without having massive oversupply.
