Re: nursing strike at 15 months -- should pump how often?
We just finished a 16 day strike here, DD2 is 18 mths old. This was her 4th strike since 9 mths and usually they last about 2 weeks. It was teeth for her as well. I don't have the option of giving up just yet since she is FTT and only will take breast milk from her cup, we are still trying other things. I pump 4 times daily during each strike, this last one I was getting 18-19 oz total. I pump first thing, during nap, after her bedtime and then before I go to bed. It has worked well to maintain my supply and when she starts up again, it comes up quickly. Good luck!
