i'm just wondering if all of you EPers pump 24 hours a day or if you just pump during the day.
i got a little excited when i read the article on this site:
that said some women can go through the night without pumping.
for those of you that do not pump at night, how were you able to get to that point?
for the past 4 days or so, i've cut out one pump session (the one that's usually around 5AM). and i feel bad, but at night, i look forward to when she wakes up to eat around then because i know i can just change her, heat up her bottle, feed her and go back to bed with her instead of having the additional task of pumping.
i was thinking that i would stick with leaving that session out for this week and then next week try cutting out an additional session.
my supply is great - i get between 5-10 oz each session. and i know that cutting out night-time pumping will most likely affect my supply, but my freezer is jammed packed with milk right now, so i wouldn't mind pumping a little less than i do now.
i dunno, i guess it's just trial and error? if it doesn't work out, i will definitely go back to pumping all day and night, but i just thought it was worth a shot after reading that article.
side note - where can i buy bigger flanges for my medela pump? i'm having a bit of discomfort when i pump, so i was going to see if that was my issue, but i'm not sure where i can pick them up.
