My little guy turns one on Monday (yay--made it to 1 year of breastfeeding!), and I've started to pump wean at work. I dropped my evening pumping about a month ago and am down to two pumping sessions at work.
My question is about nursing. LO has a good appetite for solids, but used to nurse enthusiastically right when he woke up each morning and right when we got home from work/daycare. Now, he's getting fussy and seems to want to eat solids instead of nursing in the evening. I had to pump before bed last night because he did not nurse enough.
Then, this morning, he only nursed for a little bit on one side. In the past, he would happily nurse for 30 minutes or more in the morning.
Not sure what to do. I don't want to pump to replace these sessions because that feels like moving in the wrong direction. Also, I was hoping to maintain a nursing relationship even after pump weaning at work. I know that I have sufficient supply because my breasts feel very full and are leaking in the morning when I wake up.
Any thoughts or tips?
