Thread: Pumping for a 10 month old

    Default Pumping for a 10 month old

    Good Morning! Sorry if this question has been asked. I'm pressed for time and can't search through posts at the moment. I work Tues-Fri, ten hour days. I am away from my baby for 11 hours. I have been pumping 3 times a day while at work, every 3 hours. I'm contemplating dropping that to 2 pumpings a day that would be 4 hours apart. Will this cause a drop in supply or would that be okay to do at this point? Thanks in advance for any and all replies and have a great day

    It really depends on you. If you don't have a history of low supply, I think you can give it a try. I think the worst that will happen is you'll have to increase it back up to 3 times and it might take a few days to get back to your normal production. Just keep an eye on your output and any clogged ducts.
