What's Best

DD is 8 months old, I've made it longer then I thought I would. The amount I've been pumping has been dwindling and I will continue to pump, but we've been using my freezer stash and it's disappearing quicker then I thought it would. So here is my question: is it best to use a little bit of breast milk each day and have the supply last longer OR use 100% breast milk but not as long because the supple will be gone?

I've wondered the same thing, and after a little research concluded that I think getting shots of breastmilk for longer is probably better. It seems like spreading it out over time would be more beneficial, so your baby is getting some breastmilk every day and will keep getting the benefits for longer.
