I do not have much success with breastfeeding so I'm pumping exclusively for my son, who is 6 weeks. I'm pumping 2-3 hourly in the day and 3-4 hourly in the night. Right now my supply is meeting his needs and I am producing at a rate faster than he can consume. Is my milk supply considered 'established' now?
I have read from many websites that you have to pump at this rate for at least 12 weeks to establish your supply if you are exclusively pumping. Do I need to keep at this rate? I dying to drop at least the middle-in-the-night pump as I have hardly enough rest at all.
He is feeding at 2-3 hourly in the day and 3-4 hourly at night.
Thanks for your advice and sorry if my question is stupid!
