Weaning updates?

So, how is everyone doing?

I'm now officially at 2x30min a day and I've dropped to about 17 oz (I was around 22 oz at 3x). I've also made it past "the day" where I have enough my freezer stash to finish out his first year. I think I'm going to drop to 2x25min starting on Wednesday and do it that way instead of trying to drop to 1x a day. It will be strange on Monday not having to take my pump with me to work. I'll probably end up grabbing it out of habit ;-)

I have to say that the new 2x a day schedule is really nice. I pump when I wake up and then I pump after I put Henry to bed. Also having the stress of not making it to my goal is all gone. I think I might even stop updating my spreadsheet.

sounds like things are going great! that's a good idea to ditch the spreadsheet, i bet that will be nice. great job being able to coast to the first year!


when i skipped my mid-day pump last weekend, i played video games and had a beer while ian was sleeping. it was very nice. :)


still at around 3x a day, but i only make about 12 oz a day and i expect that to drop soon. getting there slowly but surely!

I'm now at 2x23 minutes (I'll go to 2x20 minutes on Wednesday). Things are going well. No engorgement (or clogs) and my supply is slowly decreasing. I think I'm at about 12 oz now.

Henry hasn't been feeling that well the past couple of days (stuffy nose and a slight cough), so his intake is down. I've only defrosted about 30 oz so far. I'm still going to have most of my freezer stash after I'm done. After his birthday, I'm going to switch him to cow's milk at daycare and feed him EBM (fresh or frozen) at home until the stash is gone.

Great job! It seems like you have a good plan and it's great you haven't had any clogs!
