Pumping frequency?

I've been EPing for 9 months now (LO was a preemie and never caught onto the BFing thing). I still try to pump every 3 hours during the day, and don't pump at night (between about 10pm and 5am). My supply is starting to go down, and I'm probably going to stop pumping by the time LO is 1. Is still pumping every 3 hours excessive? I figure he only eats every 4-5 hours and if I were BFing then my supply would have adjusted to that. Does it work the same way with pumping? Or will it just decrease my supply even more?

It's just frustrating to keep pumping every 3 hours and be getting so much less than I did before.
