I work a four 5 hours shifts a week. In order to maintain the perfect balance of enough milk for my lo while I am gone, I pump every morning and twice during my work shift. I can sometimes put extra in the freezer, but it usually ends up being just the right amount.
DS is almost one year old, and we have had this work routine for about 6 months. I usually am always able to pump about 3-4 oz per session, but over the past couple weeks , I can get 2 oz max per session. DS is almost a year old, and I was hoping to drop the bottle the pumping while I am working, and just nurse him when we are together, but on my own terms.
Is it natural to have a supply dip around the one year point? Is my body telling me to stop pumping? Or could there be some outside influence?
