Hello mamas. I've endured low milk supply with DS1 and pumped till 14 mo (along with receiving donor milk). Now with DS2, I also pump every 2 hours and only make 10 oz p/day. I also receive donor milk to make up for another 15 oz. Here is my problem: I'm mentally and emotionally having trouble on pumping till 12 mo. I feel that it takes away time I could spend with DS1. Therefore, my goal is to pump till 9 mo (DS2 is 7 mo now).
My main concern with stopping: If I stop pumping at 9 mo, will stop giving DS2 my milk this compromise his immune system and nutrition? I know it's only 10 oz but it worries me a little. I have gotten frozen milk donations from September-December that I think will get us to the 12 mo mark. I just feel like it's not fair for DS2 that I stop pumping at 9 mo when I pumped 14 mo with DS1.
Am I just worrying too much? Opinions?
