Today is the day I'm going to attempt weaning from the pump. DS has now officially outgrown his cow's milk protein intolerance per the pedi and I'm ready to quit pumping. I want to keep nursing a little longer... I'm going for a gradual wean and hopefully one that is ultimately DS's idea. Although at 19 months he doesn't seem to want to give it up any time soon. We're still night nursing... .
So here are a few questions:
1)If I'm currently pumping twice a day at work is it best to cut the afternoon pump first b/c my milk is less in the afternoon?
2) How many days should I wait between cutting afternoon pumping AND morning pumping?
3) If I drop my pumping, will my milk dry up entirely? I'm hoping that as my supply drops DS will self-wean. He's beginning to take more cow's milk in his sippy cup but he obviously still prefers BM. Sometimes he will not even take a sip of cow's milk.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
