Re: stop pumping but continue breatfeeding?
Milk production is a little different after a year. Toddler nursing can be really erratic; they want to stay latched 24/7 one week, then the next week they've got too many better things to do and only nurse a bit here and there. Your body seems to adapt to this by producing milk as needed rather than constantly making lots of milk (of course your body is still always making milk, but it is different and you don't get big stores of milk backing up). It is still possible to get a little uncomfortable if you go a really long time without nursing, but it is nothing like the engorgement you experience with an infant. You should be able to nurse a much as ou want on the weekends without having any problems on weekdays. I'm off for the summer, but my son will go on a non-stop nursing streak, then one day decide he is too busy to nurse most of the day or I will go into the office just for the day and I haven't had any problems at all.
