I am thinking (I had some other issues...but) that cutting out my night pump wrecked me! I am only getting about 19 oz from 24-26 LVP :(

I think that big 8 hour stretch was just too much for your supply. Everyone is different. I keep my pumps spaced evenly out. Pumping every 6 hrs 4x/day. So I don't get a big stretch of sleep. But I also haven't had a drop in supply yet.

Try manual expression after you pump to boost your supply back up. You will get more milk, even when you think you are empty. I express into a mixing bowl with a pour spout. Get about an ounce each time. Takes 3-5 minutes.
