    I wasn't getting much from that afternoon pump session anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if I have little to no discomfort whatsoever (thus the reason I've been so afraid of dropping it in the first place). I'll let you know - thanks for all the advice on it and hand holding - you're one of the main reasons I'm giving this a try

    Eeek! That's a lot of responsibility!

    I hope it goes well and you don't want to end up throwing your pump at me.

    When I stopped pumping, DS was only taking like 2 or 3 oz of EBM at preschool so it didn't seem to be worth all that effort for only a couple of oz. Since I was only pumping that small amount, the transition to not pumping was pretty easy for me.

    That's where we are - I add cow's milk on top of the pittance that I pump for her dcp. She drinks one cup of whole milk/EBM combined and one cup of OJ (when I say cup, I'm not meaning 8 oz - more like around 4-6 oz). Rest is water. I think she'll be fine Thanks again!!
