It's been a long time since I've posted here.

After pumping 2x a day for 11 months through health and extreme sickness, I'm finally going down to 1x a day.

Wow, 21 months! Impressive. I just posted on my post about my supply right now. I hope 1x goes well for you.

Mom to 4 sweet blessings. 6,5, 3, and 16 months.

Thanks. I am keeping my night pump. DH and I sit and veg in front of the TV for an hour anyhow. I moved my morning pump up to DDs noonish naptime, and decreased minutes each day.

The supply thing is hard to say, bc I had an odd situation. I started at 2x a day when she was 10 months, and was at 22-24 for a long time. In the fall I got very sick and had to get a hysterectomy.

I was able to get my supply back up to 12 oz. Its around 8-10 now. I imagine I'll get about 6 for the next few weeks. I'd be happy with 4 for another 6 mo this to a year if my body will cooperate. We'll see!
