Hi All - I made it a year! I've been pumping at work twice a day since I returned to work in Sept. I want to pump wean, but have some questions:
1) I've read that some moms have done this and still been able to nurse their LO mornings/nights and even weekends. I guess I just need some reassurance on that as I'm afraid I'll lose my supply totally and am not ready to stop nursing him, just want to stop pumping at work.
2) How should I go about pump weaning? Right now I usually pump at 10 and 1:30. Should I gradually move each session by a half an hour or something until I'm out the door and on my way home with no pumping
3) For those of you that did pump wean, what did you do for your LO during the day? Did you give cows milk in a bottle/sippy? Right now I am mixing half BM and half cows milk in his bottle until he's used to the cows milk and then I think I'll try to switch those over to sippy cups. He drinks water from his sippy really well, and I tried some plain milk last week while I was on vacation to see how he did and he did okay, but not great. I never thought to warm it up though, maybe he didn't like it cold? I'm just not sure how to handle his current bottles if I stop pumping.
Thanks for any advice/help! I get so overwhelmed and confused with this mommy thing at times and don't know what I would do without this forum
