Re: Tired of pumping at work. What can I do?
Once you hit a year old you should be able to stop pumping no problem. Your supply is very well-established by that time so it will be there when you need it, even on days that you don't work. Many moms here stop pumping at a year and continue to nurse well into toddlerhood.
As long as you are still nursing 3-4 times a day you don't need to use any kind of replacement milk, though you can if you want to. When I stopped pumping my daughters caregivers tried to give her cow's milk, but she never would drink it (she is 5 now and still won't drink it). She just had solids and water, occasionally some watered down juice, when she was at school and then nursed when we got home.
