Re: I am new!
Lots of moms pump-wean at the age of one. Your supply is well-established by that time so you don't need to worry much about your supply dropping. It will be there when you need it, even on weekends. And if you continue to nurse 3-5 times per day, you don't need to replace the breast milk with a milk alternative, though you can use cow's milk (or other milks) if you wish. Solid foods and water should be plenty for the hours you are apart.
