demand and supply

nola has slept through the night TWICE in the last week. this is HUGE. i was shocked to wake up in the morning (engorged, of course) and realize that i didn't take her out of the crib all night. what a good sleeper!

but i'm (stupidly) torn.

i want her to be a good sleeper because paul never was and still isn't, and i want her to sleep well in the crib. she seems to be doing both.

but i want to keep nursing/pumping as long as i can, and i think the only reason why i managed to pump so long was because paul was still sleeping with us and therefore was helping himself to milk whenever he wanted it. it kept my supply up. if a girl cuts down on her feeds this early, how am i going to be able to keep up with her bottle demands?
