I have a 4 month old baby who I exclusively breastfeed, and when I'm away from him (currently not working), he gets a bottle of pumped milk. I've had take my milk and store it in freezers at my mom's house and my grandma's house, and today I estimated we have probably about 700oz saved up. Is it me, or does that seem like a whole freaking lot of milk?
Generally, I pump two times a day - once before I go to bed at night pumping both sides and once in the morning before my little one gets up or after he eats. The pump in the morning is usually one side plus a couple ounces from the other side. I do this because, if I don't, I get engorged overnight and start leaking all over the place.
Should I stop pumping or slow it down? How do I do that? Should I just pump a couple ounces on each side during these pumpings instead of a full session? My mom's freezer can't really take any more milk, and my grandma said something about her freezer starting to fill up too the last time I brought milk over. We may have to invest in a deep freeze in our apartment!!
