I'm EPing and was wondering when I can drop one of my two middle of the night pump. My LO is 7 weeks.

I would say you can drop at any time. Keep pumping your usual ssssions during the day and pump a few minutes extra. I stopped all night pumping sessions when my baby was around 6 weeks. I was worried I would get less when I stopped at night but it didn't happen. Around 3 months my daughter started drinking about 5 more ounces a day and at the same time I started to produce 5-10 ounces a day. Be armed with extra bottles for that morning pump, I usually pump around 16 onces right away in the am ;)

Sorry, that is 5-10 extra ounces a day.
