Nola will be 10 months old on Christmas eve. About a month ago, I cut down to two pumps per day. I have been feeling okay about it

I think you could probably safely stop cold turkey.

I agree with the previous poster. It seems like your body has gotten the message that you are weaning and your supply has dropped. I think that you could go cold turkey, but I would also drop to 1x a day first. GL and fabulous job!!! Your feelings about this are completely natural. I would just focus on the wonderful extra time that you will have with DD!

just wanted to say that i sympathize with your feelings. when ian started increasing his solid intake, i had a lot of the same feelings about him not needing his mommy milk anymore, and we weren't even weaning! sounds like you're going through a lot of transitions right now, and your feelings are perfectly normal.

you'll get through this! great job EPing for 10 months!
