DS is 5 months old and ebf. He can go up to 8-9 hours overnight without feeding which is fine, hasn't effected my supply and doesn't cause any discomfort.

I am going to go out tomorrow afternoon and will be leaving him with expressed milk for 6-7 hours.

Will there be a need for me to express during this time in order to keep my supply up?

I know that I can go that long without feeding but with it being a different time of day to when I usually do will it make a difference?

I wouldn't worry about your supply, but you may need to express for your comfort.

Yes your supply will be fine as it's a one off but you might become engorged
