Re: Is it OK to drop to pump 2x a day now?
you will likely not be able to pump twice and get the same yield - maybe for a few days until your body adjusts to the lower demand, but very likely not long term. but your supply should be well-enough established now that you could actually quit pumping altogether if you wanted (slowly!!) and nurse when you're together without any trouble. you can give her cow's milk or water or whatever you want while you're apart in place of breastmilk; as long as she's nursing 3-4 times per 24 hours she's getting her "dairy" requirement from that. personally i couldn't wait to quit the pump and get my work productivity back, and did so at the earliest opportunity. good luck with your decision!
