I am curious as to how long people go between pumps when they eliminate the MOTN pump?

Not sure if I'll be a lot of help...I am at 4 times now, so my last pump is 9:30-10 and then I get up at 5:30-6 am to pump and feed my LO. I'm pretty small breasted, so I'm hard as a rock when I get up in the morning:) But I've heard from ladies here that some of them sleep 8-9 hours at night with no problem, so I'm sure it is duable. My suggestion would be to go slow, so extend the time you sleep by half hour every few days and let your body adjust. Then you'll be able to figure out where you feel comfortable.

I'm the same as PP--4x/day (all power pumps for 1hr though) and have small boobs so wake up very hard. I currently pump at 5a (plus/minus 30min), 11:30a, 4:30a, and then around 10a. I'm an AVP or LVP (not sure what the defs are) and get the most in the mornings (around 9-10oz/). I eliminated the MOTN pumps maybe around 3mos PP (currently DD is 6mos). Gluck and hope you get sleep!
