Here is some info about me... my little one is 6 months old, I work full time, I nurse in the morning and at night (after a meal of rice cereal) and all day on the weekends (with help from bottle after). At work I can pump 2x a day and am currently pumping for 10 min each time (and getting about 2-3 oz total each time I pump).
Here is my question/situation...My original goal/plan was to nurse my baby until she was 6 months. I never felt the desire to go longer than this. So, I've been starting to slowly wean by not pumping as much at work...
well, I think I've changed my mind. Not sure what it was, but just last night I realized I don't want to/need to stop right now. However, now I'm concerned because I know my supply has gone done quite a bit already. Even at night, she'll nurse for a while then we'll give her a bottle just to make sure she is nice and full. She'll still drink several ounces after nursing for 15 min or so.
Anyway, I plan to increase how much water I drink and I can increase the length of time I pump at work but not really the frequency. Will that matter if I pump for 15 min vs 10? Or should I really try to work in a third time in there?
I'm concerned this may not be possible/even worth it once she starts more 'real' food soon... thoughts/encouragement?
