LO is 6.5 months and I pump 7 times a day for at least 20 min each. I am getting about 28 oz a day. When I dropped from 8 to 7 pumps, I lost 3-4 oz. He eats 30 oz a day. I used the last of my freezer stash three days ago so I'm having to give him 2-4 oz of formula a day to make up the difference. He also eats solids 3 times a day and was 20 lbs at his 6 month checkup.

DD is 5 months old, and I pump 5-7 times per day depending on how the day goes. I usually pump for around 20 mins, sometimes 30-40 mins in the morning because I am trying to drop the MOTN pump. I average 40 ounces per day.

My DS is almost 5 months. I just dropped a pump, so now I'm pumping 5 times for 30-40 min( I'm a slow drainer).

My DS is 11 months. I still pump 4x / day for about 20 minutes each time. Get around 41-42 oz per day. Not sure how to drop from here as I've had really bad problems with infections and get clogs daily. It's been a struggle but I'm probably going to start weaning by dropping minutes, not pumps, next month. Hard to believe it's almost here and I'm a little sad about it.

Hi all. My DD is 7.5 months. I pump 3 times a day for 20 minutes each. I think I need a pumpathon because I am starting to dry up a bit. I went from making 55 ounces a day to 30 or less, and the LO is drinking more and more.
