    Yes, I am also envious!! Were you EPing for your LO? Great job!!

    I have decided I will quit pumping when my LO transitions up to the next room at daycare at the end of November. In her current room, if she won't drink her BM out of a cup, they will transfer it to a bottle for her to drink. No bottles allowed in the next older room, so if she won't drink it they are just going to throw it away. I'm not going to waste my time pumping if most of the milk is just going to be trashed.

    Congrats! I'm glad it worked out well for you.

    I'm cutting out pumping slowly myself here, but I am down to 3 pumping sessions a day... however, I'm still pumping 50 ounces every day.
