Well I did decide to wean completely. We are a happier household around here because of it and luckily I still have over 500oz of BM in the freezer that I will try to give her after 3 months, when hopefully her digestive tract can handle it. If not, I'll be donating it.
I have weaned very gradually to avoid infection. I was comfortably at 3 pumps/day until Sunday, when I finally dropped down to 2. I was uncomfortable on Sunday but by yesterday I was fine. Last night before bed, I didn't even feel like I needed to pump, but I went ahead and pumped for 10 minutes and total yesterday only pumped out 7oz... and haven't pumped yet this morning (8:30am) and am still not that full at all.
So my question is... should I just go ahead and not pump at all at this point? Or just wait and see how I'm feeling as the day goes on? I've just been doing it so gradually over the past couple of weeks that I don't know what to do now that I am close to the end!
