My sister has been exclusively pumping for her son. She needs to wean due to starting IVF treatments. How exactly does she go about pump weaning? I never really had to wean from the pump as I was producing so little, that I just stopped one day. I told her that I would start by just cutting off a few minutes from each pumping session. After doing that for some time, continue to cut more minutes off and posssibly increase the amount of time between pumping sessions. Am I on the right track? Or is there something else I should tell her.
Also, I have heard mixed things about mixing BM with formula. Is this okay? Does anyone have any articles about pros or cons on doing this. I wish she would continue to bf, but her insurance she currently has will cover IVF - a miracle in itself!! They will be moving out of the state in about a year, so they need to do this soon.
