Sorry, that was supposed to say: 6-12 months. I'm pumping 3x a day and get about 18 oz a day. DD drinks it all and gets 6 oz of formula a day. Just wondering what everyone else is doing.
Thanks,
Erica

Well, I'm at 4 pumps now at 8 months, but will go to 3 pumps for months 9 &10, 2 pumps at month 11 and use my freezer supply to take me to 12 months.

I'm pumping 3x at 7 1/2 mo and get right around 30 oz. DD drinks 26 oz so i'm keeping up with her. I have about a month and a half in the freezer so I' probably go down to 2x at 10 1/2 mo and start to use up my stash.

I pump 4x/day - and get about 36 ounces total. Z eats all of it, too, so none is being saved.

I'm thinking about going down to 3x/day; I have a modest freezer stash, and she's eating more and more solid foods. SO, as soon as she starts drinking less, I will likely drop a pump.

I should add, since I don't often post, that LO is 7.5 months old now.

How is the 3x/day going for you?
My baby is 6.5 mo old. I am pumping 4x/day 36-40 oz
We are out of freezer space and my work is also getting annoyed with me pumping twice during my shift *I am a slow pumper 35-40 min (RN, 12 hour shifts) so I am thinking of dropping to 3x/day next week

I have battled clogs and mastitis during this adventure. Don't want to do that again! I would like to make it to a year or more if possible. I don't want to lose my supply but am ok with losing a few ounces as we have a couple months supply in the freezer that needs to be used at some point. No sense in it just sitting there degrading!

I'd love to hear your thoughts and input.

Thank you!

I m pumping 4 times a day and I get about 28 oz which is just what we need. I have nothing stored, so it's a game of catch-up some days!
