How to drop pumping sessions...
Currently EPing for my 5 month old; 6 sessions a day, including one at 2am! UGGGH! I want to be sure he gets BM at least a year, ideally to 18 months. Have a stash in the freezer because I'm getting way more than he drinks ( 8-10 oz each session!). When the time comes, probably not for a couple more months, how do you cut out pumping sessions without being in pain or discomfort and not totally lose your supply?

Re: How to drop pumping sessions...
You can either do it cold turkey or gradually move the 2am pumping session closer to your next pumping session.

I would probably start now and move it by an hour for a week at a time. That would help with the discomfort.

As for supply, it sounds like you have a good supply established so you should be fine. If you are finding you are not getting enough the you can always add that session back in.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 11:21 PM.
