I've been exclusively breastfeeding since Anna was about 6 weeks old (when I went back to work). Initially, I was using a hospital grade pump 8 times a day and taking mothers milk supplements. Despite this, I wasn't making enough milk and began supplementing with 1-2 bottles of formula a day. Over the months, I got lazy with pumping and now (at 5.5 months), I pump 3-4 times a day for 30 minutes a time. My supply went down but not dramatically with the decreased pumping sessions so I felt it was OK considering how much more time I could spend with Anna.
