Hello Ladies,

I have made it to EP for 8 months 1 1/2 weeks now and want to continue for at least a year now. I have freezer stash for about 1 months.

My supply was similar to yours, although slightly less at 4x than yours.

Sounds like you are ready for some sleep! I agree with emd2004 - go longer at night - get some much needed zzzz's. You may find 4 pumps easier when you are better rested and if not then drop a pump as well. Good luck!

i agree with the previous posts! try to space out the pumps differently so you can get a longer stretch of sleep! for example, i am at 4 pumps a day- 7am, 12pm, 5pm, and 10pm right before bed. it has made all the difference to me since dropping pumps and getting sleep! now that i get sleep i am so much more rested, and don't mind the pump! i have even increased my goal of how long to pump for! goodluck!

Thanks ladies for all the advice. I am going stick to 4 pumps for now but moving my schedule around to get more sleep if my hubby lets me. I swear I tried to pump 1hr later in the morning and without fail he wakes me up with all the noise he makes getting ready for work. I mean for some1 to say I am in a B mood all the time its because of him ahhhhhhh ok had to vent about that.

Thanks again!

The "quiet gene" must be a sex-linked trait--only women get it!
