Thinking of weaning from the pump.
From 6weeks-11months, I pumped at 10:30, 1pm and 3:30pm (plus nights and weekends)
at 11 months, I cut out the 10:30 session and was only pumping 2x a day.
My son turned 1 year last week and I have cut back to one pumping session per day and I am only getting about 2oz (a bit more if I pump later in the day).
Lately I find myself just pumping at whatever time is convenient while I am working. Sometimes it's on my lunch, sometimes it's in the later afternoon. It's definitely not for comfort at this point. I pump so that my son has something to drink at daycare (I mix breast milk with cows milk now).
I think I'm going to give up pumping completely very soon, but obviously something is holding me back. I feel like the 2-3oz of pumped breast milk he is getting is so minimal now that it's not even worth it (he nurses 5x in a 24hr period when we are together).
Does being on a regular pumping schedule matter at this point? Or is it okay to be erratic with it?
