Re: Exclusively Pumping For 1yr old
My daughter is 13mo, but she came early, so I'm pumping full-time until her original EDD rolls around. I currently produce more than she drinks in a day, so the freezer gets fed daily. After June, I plan to slowly wean from the pump over several months. She reacts to dairy, so I can't wean her onto cow's milk. I want to keep her with as much breastmilk as possible until 18mo--whether fresh or frozen. If I can get even a small amount (say, 10oz total) pumping twice a day after that, I'll keep going until she's two. She won't have a biological need for milk after that and she's pretty gung ho for solids, so I'm comfortable with it.
