My son is 8.5mths old and currently at his daycare they will not give him breastmilk after he is 12mths old he will only receive whole cows milk.
I am currently pumping 2-3X a day at work and always get the 15oz that he takes every day. At home he has one meal and we nurse on demand. I was planning on pump weaning at 12mths anyways, but now that I finding out that he will not get any breastmilk at day when he turns 12mths, I'm thinking I should be weaning sooner. I dont want to waste my milk so when and how should I start pump weaning to make sure that I can supply him the milk up to 12mths old?
I have 73.5oz frozen in the freezer (btw...how long does it stay good for in the freezer? I believe my latest bag is from the end of November). I would really like to continue nursing him during the evenings after work and on the weekends, will pump weaning decrease my supply for the evenings...will I become engorged during the day until I get home with the baby? I don't have to give it all up do I?
Any help or suggestions would be great!
