Re: Reducing daily pumpings
You can adjust the timing of your pumping session by a little bit each day, spacing them out more until your 1st session is a little later and your last session a little earlier with only one session in between. If you do it slowly you shouldn't have as much problem with engorgement.
I pump somewhere between 10-11, somewhere between 12:30-2, and sometimes a 3rd session around 3:15, depending on how the other 2 are timed. If I feel like I need more milk I'll pump again after the baby has gone to bed, at least an hour after his last feeding.
