Re: not pumping anymore- but breastfeedi
You could probably keep up with the dinnertime feeding for as long as your baby was willing to nurse. However, dropping all your daytime pumping sessions would probably leave you with a fairly minimal milk supply. I personally would want to keep on pumping at least a couple times per day, to help keep that dinnertime supply and also to keep your supply up for the weekends, when you and baby can just bum around and enjoy nursing, no need for pumping. I know it sucks to be told to just keep pumping when I am sure you are feeling so done with the pump already... But you can do it, mama! If you don't do it for the baby's nutrition, do it for yourself. The longer you lactate, the more health benefits accrue to you (lowered risk for heart disease, obesity, breast cancer).
