My LO is going to be 10 months on the 17th and for eight of those months I've been exclusivley pumping. He wasn't a good nurser and this has worked out best. I have zero intentions at this point to reintroduce the breast. He has teeth and he's not afraid to use them.
I've made small goals throughout... nurse until maternity leave...nurse until he's six months and now it's nurse until he's a year. I really don't think I can do more than that.
The problem is that I'm getting sick and tired of pumping And to make things worse now that my period is back my supply takes a dip during that "special" time of the month, which stresseds me out and makes me want to throw in the towel.
I think things would get better for me if I pumped to five times instead of my usual six. I'm concerned that my supply will take a dip.
I only have just under three months to go. Shall I reduce my pumping by one session. What have you done? I'm just getting really tired...have I said that already.
