    LO just turned 13 months, and I am pump weaned. For a while I was pumping 8-10 oz a day, and he would only drink half of that all day at daycare. So after he turned a year, I started offering whole milk and reducing my pumping. He has never been a big eater...he will nurse before bed, once during the night, early morning, and maybe a little here and there after we get home from daycare until bedtime. I constantly worry that he isn't getting enough (he is smallish, has dropped in weight and height % pretty consistently). However, DH and I are smaller, and pedi isn't worried because DS is active and ahead in milestones. I just didn't see the point in taking up my prep time with pumping if he was only eating half of what I pumped. He is drinking whole milk and water better every day.

    I pump at work until Hunter was about 17 months. He was not drinking it at my Mil's and I felt like it was a waste. I tried giving him cows milk but he hates it. Since he still nurses like 4 times a day during the week, I'm not worried.
