I def had issues with letdown if I was tense or stressed out. 2am seems a weird time to have a letdown issue since I was usually pretty relaxed and still half asleep, but I did notice a difference at work. I had to distract myself, usually by scrolling through pictures of my baby while pumping. When breastfeeding, I really focused on the sensation of him nursing and nothing else. Or stroked his hair, stared at his pretty face, played with his toes. Hopefully you figure out what works for you, because if you don’t have a supply issue now – if you’re not able to express, you will end up with one. I also noticed a dip in my supply when I started getting super stressed about my supply dipping, and it became a vicious cycle. Good luck!
