Re: Maxed out pump settings
How much milk do you get in a typical pumping session? Why do you feel this is a problem, is the amount you pump decreasing?
Higher settings don't necessarily mean more milk and pumping too high can actually hurt your production (and hurt physically if you do it too much). 9-10 months is a common time for moms to start seeing a decrease in the amount of milk they are able to pump. You are approaching a year, which is about the time many moms stop pumping during the day. If you've got a big freezer stash and your lo still nurses frequently when you are together, this might not be anything you need to be worrying about.
