Re: donating milk - implications for weaning and oversupply?
I can't really remember. Maybe somewhere around 6 months? However, it was a blessing in a way because it was easy to pump what she needed when I was at work. Although she refused bottles, so it wouldn't have been that hard to pump what little she actually drank.
For several months I would nurse her on one side for up to 4 hours and then the other side. After a while I just started nursing her one-sided from feeding to feeding. She never did take both breasts.
I did notice a drop in supply around 9 months when I was pumping at work and that's when I think that my body finally regulated to what she was taking out.
