Okay, so this whole pump weaning thing is so unnatural for me since I have been obessed with my supply for the last year and it makes me very nervous. DD will be a year on Wednesday and I need and want to stop pumping during the day. Prior to my weaning I pumped at the following times and got the following amounts: Nursed at 5:30am, pumped 2oz at 7:30am, pumped 3-4oz at 10:30, pumped 3-4oz at 2:00pm, nursed upon returning home at 5, nursed baby to sleep at 7:30-8pm, and nursed as needed throughout the night. Prior to pump weaning DD was pretty much sleeping through the night entirely w/o waking at all till morning for a little over a week. Now that I'm pump weaning she has been waking at least once sometimes twice during the night. This week I've dropped the 7:30am pump and changed the other two pumps to 9:30am and 2:30am. So I've basically gone from pumping approximately every 3 hours (other than the first which is 2 hours after 1st nursing session of the day) to pumping every 5 hours. The first day my breasts didn't feel uncomfortable full but I did sense something different about the way the felt especially after work right before I nurse baby. From the second day on I don't feel a thing. Definitely not any uncomfortableness at all. Now in the 2 sessions of pumping I'm getting about 4oz or so. This seems too easy. Next week I planned on going to 1 pump a day right before or around lunchtime. Could DD be waking more often again because my pump weaning is so successful and my supply is dropping altogether? I think she may have also triggered my supply to decrease last week during our extended weekend due to not wanting to nurse as often or as long as she used to. I'm just so afraid of losing the only tool I have to get her to sleep at night. She is usually wide awake around bedtime until I take her into the bedroom and start nursing her. And the only way I have known to get her to sleep again in the middle of the night is nursing. Everybody thinks we're going to be completly done nursing once she turns a year and tries to give me tips on how to get her to sleep without it (i.e. holding her close and giving her a bottle). Granted this is coming from people with formula feed babies so they don't realize that it is just as much if not more trouble for me to get up in the middle of the night to get a bottle ready and give it to the baby. I can at least rest my eyes while she nurses with her cradled safely in my arms versus having to hold a bottle to her mouth. I'm also worried about whether or not she likes cow's milk but from other posts it sounds like if I continue our 3 normal nursing sessions during the week and on demand on the weekends she should be fine with other added dairy. This whole concept just makes me nervous because it goes against everything I've been doing for the past year. I guess I just need some assurance that DD will be fine with whatever supply I have left after the pump weaning and that I am going about it the right way. Sorry I rambled!
