old_time_girl:You are probably overstimulated from the day. I know I feel "over touched" and don't enjoy BFing sometimes. With DS1, I pumped enough to build up a little stash so that DH could give a bottle during the night for me. Maybe try that? Give yourself a break.
letranger:Sounds like poor/sleeping latch issue. You could pump while H feeds at night.

Actually a latch issue is very possible. at night you are tired and baby often eats more often at night because they have days and nights mixed up. So if the latch isn't perfect and they are eating non-stop at night, it may really be irritating.
I would probably not do the pumping and bottle feeding just yet if possible. I'd work on latch paying a lot of attention to it at night. and also work on getting baby to be awake more during the day--wake to feed every 2 hours from start of one feeding to start of the next, keep things noisy and bright, and at night try to swaddle tightly, don't wake to feed, keep things very very quiet and dark as you can but enough light to see if latch is good.
