I was pumping 4x and making 50-52 ounces. I dropped to 3x at 3 months (12 weeks) I no make 40-45 ounces at 3x. So I lost about 7-10 ounces. Just depends on the day. I think I am a hvp with a large capacity. iF my little one only drank 22 I would so drop to 2x. With that much to spare if you need to drop to 3x you should try it.

Little one now drinks 30-35 a day and up to 40 during growth spurts.

I'm curious about this too. I'm a AVP and get 30-33 ounces per day and DD drinks 27 ounces at 8.5 months. I'd like to drop my 5:30 pump. Right now I pump at 5:45 am, 12:30 at work, 5:30 pm at home and 8:30pm. I pick DD up at daycare at 4:45 and she goes to bed about 7:00 so I'd like that 20 minutes back so I can spend it with her.


I figure I've got the freezer stash to supplement if I decrease too much.
