Re: pump weaning a little early
hi mama, two things:
1. if you need to supplement, formula is the right choice. formula or milk should be primary food until a year. i know in countries other than the US recommendations allow cow's milk at 9 months instead of a year, but still that should be a supplement, not the basis of the nutrition.
2. there are lots of super creative people here who can help you brainstorm the pumping. certainly you'll need at least to wean yourself from the pump during the day. so if you'd like suggestions/ideas, tell us more about your situation!
