I know I've asked this before but I'm still struggling with how best to drop pumps. I know everyone is different, but...hoping to benefit from the collective wisdom of this board!!!
question: How many times did you pump, for how long each time, and for how many weeks; and when you started to drop, how soon did you drop, what was your frequency and duration then, and did you continue with the night-time pump; and how much did your volume decrease? (Yes, I know that's actually eight questions)
My LC had encouraged me to go to about 6x at 12 weeks PP, saying that "Most women who do this long-term typically do 6x/day." We're at 15 weeks PP and 7x/day, and I would love to drop one session (do I dare say two?) to free up more time to take care of the baby. I'm not sure how much of a sacrifice in supply I'm willing to deal with yet.
