Hi! I know that everyone is different, but I am asking anyways...

I have been bfeeding for 6 mo and pumping at work for 4 mo. If I stop pumping during the day at work, do you think that I will need to supplement with formula during the day on weekends and days off??

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Everyone is different but after time probably. Cause then are you just going to be breast feeding like once a day? I think your supply will go low.

I pick Jake up by 2:45 each day so I get about 3 feedings in by the time he goes to bed, along with feeding him in the morning before work. But I think you are right, my supply will definately go down....

Thanks for the thoughts!

What time do you drop him off? How many times at work did you pump? If it's only once you should be fine

I drop him off around 7:15. I pump twice - once in the morning and once at lunch time. Recently, I have not been getting as much milk when I pump but it doesn't seem to affect Jake's feeding schedule when I am home...

Hmm you can try it you may be fine. Worse case is you just supplement. Which you are doing already right?
