Longest time to go between pumps?

My son is almost 5 months old, and right now I am at 6 pumps a day. I haven't gone longer than 6 hours without pumping due to fear of losing supply or getting clogged (which hasn't happened much at all since about 15 weeks--used to get them all the time). Do any of you go longer than 6 hours between pumps (and then make up for it by shorter in-between times at other times of the day)? I would love to sleep a tiny bit longer when possible or to not feel so rushed at work to pump.
Also, what has been your experience with dropping to 5 pumps? I'd like to try, but it looks like some people on this board experience the biggest drop in supply going from 6 to 5 pumps.
Right now, I make about 1-2 bottles more than my son drinks each day if that makes a difference.
Thanks for the advice!
