DD is almost 10 months old and we are on the road to weaning (obviously still have a few months). I have always planned to nurse through the first year, and it is quickly approaching. I am really looking forward to ditching my pump as it has been such a challenge to keep up (pumping 4 times per day, 3 x at work). I suppose my question is, when can I start to decrease the amount of times I pump during the day? Also, when I stop pumping at work (closer to a year I assume) will my body still make milk if DD wants to nurse in the morning at before bed or will I dry up?
I have to say, I went from hating nursing (it was rough in the beginning), to really enjoying it, to not minding it...but I am really ready to get my body back, I know it sounds selfish! DD is thriving, loving her solids, but most certainly still loving BF. Any words of wisdom to those who have gone down this road?
Pumping at work has become very challenging as I feel it is all I do! I am ready to have my lunch/breaks back instead of running to grab my bag and into the lactation room! Extended BF is not for me, so that isn't an option, just want some advice/support on my next few months ahead. Thanks!
