Re: how do you wean when you pump exclusively?
Wow, that is a long time to be pumping (30-60 minutes)! Good for you!
Anyway, I exclusively pumped with my 1st ds and like you, after a miscarriage, I decided to wean as soon as I became pregnant again. My supply decreased a LOT, pretty much from the moment of conception, so that really aided in the weaning process . But otherwise, I just gradually decreased the number of pumpings per day. I think at the time I was pumping 4 times a day, for 10 minutes each. I just spaced out the pumpings more (I can't remember how long this took, but I think it was about a week), until I was only pumping once a day. I only pumped once a day for 2 days, and then I just let it dry up. During all this, I still only pumped for 10 minutes at each session. I didn't experience any engorgement at all, but like I said it could've been due to the pregnancy hormones.
