i was latching on dd during my ML and boby started to sync with baby's feeding. after i go back to work and started pumping, my body seems no longer in sync with my baby's feeding. now she sometimes sleep thru the night yet my boobs are up for pumping in the middle of the night. any other mumies have similar issues? how do you resolve this?

What you are experiencing is normal. I had the same problem as you. As babies get bigger and their tummies can hold more milk hence their feeding hours stretches. Do you feel engored in the mid of the night?If you do, suggest you pump out the milk. I try to let baby sleep throughout the day so that my sleep is not disrupted. I will wake up earlier to pump and leave for work. Having enough rest helps in producing more milk.

Before I went back to work, I direct latched the whole day. I never had a habit of waking up in the middle of the night to pump though. That could explain why my supply is quite low when I pump. There doesn't seem to be any difference when I latch though. I turn to my baby and latch her at night (dreamfeed) and she does suckle in her sleep. Maybe you can try that as well?
