So DS will be one next month and I want to pump wean by the end of his 12th month. I am still planning on nursing him in the morning and evening until he is ready to wean...but I am just ready to be done pumping at work!!
Right now I am pumping one to two times a day at work and within the first 5 min I have 10oz to 15oz depending on if I pump once or twice! Supply is most def not an issue we have a plentiful supply! But that is what worries me...will it take longer for my body to adjust to not pumping during the day? On the days that I only pump once I am VERY uncomfortable until i am able to pump and then by the time I get out of work I am very uncomfortable and DS better be ready for a snack!! He is to the point at daycare that he only takes two 5oz bottles and then transitioning into table food so I really don't need to pump more than once at work because then I will have more than what I need for him for the day.
I guess I am just not sure where to begin and how long it should take...should I just stick with pumping only once during the day and stick through the uncomfortable times until my body adjusts?? and then how do I go from one time to none...do I just stop? I'm afraid that since I have such a great supply (which I'm not complianing about at all) will I end up with a plugged duct or mastitis because I haven't pumped during the day!
any suggestions would be great!
