Re: how to pump wean after summer break
When pump weaning, you want to be a little cautious and make sure you bring the pump with you the first few days or weeks back at work. Your goal is to gradually wean from pumping, just like you'll eventually gradually wean from nursing. Weaning too fast can result in plugged ducts, engorgement, and discomfort- so you're going to want to have your pump to relieve those issues if they occur during the workday.
Long as your baby is nursing 3-5 times a day, you don't need to offer animal milk. And cow's milk in a sippy isn't the only way for a baby to get calcium and fat- whole milk yogurt and cheese are also great sources.
