preparing to wean from the pump...

Postby jessm » Fri Nov 09, 2012 1:15 pm

So with DS coming up on a year soon I'm starting to think about weaning from the pump at work. I'm planning on cutting out 1 pump in the next week or 2, my lunch pump. So I'll pump at 11 and 2 instead of 10:30, 12:30 and 2:30. I'm not sure when I should cut down to 1 pump...mid December maybe? I would like to be able to continue nursing while I'm with him so I don't want to totally tank my supply, but also after his first birthday I would like to get him down to nursing in the morning, at night and naptime.

I'm cutting out my lunch session too! Just started it today. My reasons are different though...I produce WAY too much milk, and now my freezer space is getting really low lol. My daughter is now 6 months old and doesn't nurse nearly as frequently anyway, so I figure this shouldn't hurt me too much. Let me know how it goes for you.
