So I started weaning recently....went from pumping every 3 hours for 10 minutes down to every 3 hours for 7 minutes.....Instead of getting 3 oz, I am now getting 1/2 to 1 oz each time (I only pump one side each session). I feel fine, no pain, no more engorgement....I can feel some fullness at times, but not bad.
My question is about my letdown. Initially it would happen within 1-2 mintues. I am noticing now it takes almost 4 minutes. Is this normal? Pretty soon I will be decreasing my minutes to basically just when the letdown starts. Will this just signal to make more milk?
Any ideas or advice??
