I have been EPing for 4 months now. I started out pumping 7 times a day, but have now dropped myself down to 5 times a day. I seem to pump less and less as time goes on. Now I'm pumping about 25 oz a day, but my daughter requires around 28-30 oz each day. I have a chest freezer full of milk which is great. I'm concerned because I'm going back to work next month and wanted to drop down to pumping 4 times a day. I want to be able to give her breastmilk for at least 6 months.

I have been pumping exclusively for almost 6 months now.
