Hi everyone,

I had a 36 week preemie that has a heart defect and feeding issues- she has a g tube.

I have heard that dropping from 4 pumps to 3 often leads to a big hit in supply. I have a 10 month old boy and I am still at 4 pumps, producing just under what you are. I have been too nervous to drop to 3 pumps as I'm not making much extra these days ... so I hope other ladies chime in here and let us know their experience!!

When I went from 4 pumps to 3 I lost at least a whole pump's worth of milk.
