Hi ladies!

I am almost at 10 months ePing (my goal is one year). I am pumping 4x a day. When I dropped to 4 pumps at 6.5 months, I saw a gradual decrease in my supply. The stomach virus i got a few weeks back sealed the deal. I have always been an AVPer, but now I m an LVPer...just making enough for celia's daily intake and mostly out of my freezer stash. That drop to 4 pumps killed me in the long run. I so want to drop to 3x a day, but I know it is going to kill my supply. What did any of you do in my situation do? Did you stick out the extra pump, or did you dare to drop? If so, when? What if I only drop a couple days a week? Will that do permanent damage? Thanks for your input!!!!!

The drop from 4 to 3 for me was by far the most loss I ever saw.
