Maintaining Supply

J. • 👼🏻🌈👶🏻

My little boy is 6 weeks old, at the beginning we went to an LC to practice our latch and get some pointers and mentioned that we do pump and bottle feed, not only nurse.

She was very adamant that it was important not to go any longer than a 5 hour stretch at any point without pumping to prevent supply problems... does the same apply to nursing? My little one just went a 5 hour stretch (we aren’t going to jinx it) of sleeping.. (yes the doctor has already told us not to wake him up if he’s sleeping, Opinions regarding that not welcome).. but if he does occasional long stretches is it going to affect my supply?
