We are at 7 months now and I am wondering if it would be good to drop to 3x a day or if I should wait another month. When did you drop to 3x a day?

Hi, it would depend on how much you are making and how much your baby is consuming.

At 4 times a day, I made around 40 ounces a day. Emma drinks about 16 to 24 ounces a day and I froze the rest. I donate to another family.

At a year, I explained to the family that my donations would be a lot less. I am at 3 times per day and I get about 30 ounces per day. Emma drinks about 12 ounces per day.

I am going to drop to 2 times a day - just enough to make milk for Emma at the end of this month.
