My DD is almost 9 months old. I'm so proud of myself for sticking out breastfeeding this far with all that I've been through!
I have a question about pumping. Some of the people that I work with (although none of them have kids so I don't trust their opinion) say they can't believe I'm still pumping. So, I've tried to cut it down to once a day. But the problem is that my DD drinks more milk than that in a day. I've told her caretakerr only to give her the one bottle and solids while I'm at work. However, I just found out that my DD has been getting two bottles of formula a day because her caretaker was having a hard time keeping her satisfied with the solids.
So, should I still be pumping just as much as I used to? I feel like I should be pumping at least twice if not three times a day. I make about four ounces in a pumping session, and I'm gone for almost nine hours.
I think my biggest problem is just making the people at work understand, but I do want to make sure I'm not the one in the wrong.
