I posted this under "Milk Supply" but wanted to post it here too in hopes of it not missing someone who could help me.
I am a HVP and am wishing to decrease my supply. I end up throwing a lot of BM down the sink and hate the thought of doing so. I still have more than enough to build a freezer stash (but will run out of room if I freeze all left over at the volume I pump daily now). I want to drop my middle of the night pump and also decrease my daily volume by this amount (about 15 ounces). I currently pump at 7am, 12pm, 5pm, 10pm and 3am...getting about 13 - 15 ounces per session.
Any tips on how to do this? I know that technically I should empty out every time I pump but I fear I will never decrease my supply if I don't stop at my regular per session volume each time. Then again, I want to avoid mastitis and clogged ducts.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
