I am now down to pumping once a day! DS is now 13 months and still loves his milk from the tap, LOL. We BF still on demand with 1-2 night wakings, usually a quick feed and right back to sleep. Last week he actually slept straight through (roughly 8p-6:30a) with no wakings twice. So nice!! We are mixing whole milk with EBM 50/50 for his feeding in a cup and since doing that his intake has gone down to 8oz or less while I'm at work. He is eating solid foods as well and that intake has also decreased since his birthday, which I've read is normal so I'm not overly concerned. Also read that it is normal for some 12 month olds to just take BM and no solids. When I'm home with him, DS probably feeds about 6 times not counting the night wakings. I don't think he is ready to wean just yet. After the 12 month well visit MIL asked what the doctor said about weaning, hint perhaps? Yeah. Which is funny because she was hesistant to change from bottle to cup while she watches him. So, I'm thinking that I might need to continue to pump once daily if for no other reason other than until DS shows that he is more ready for weaning or is this not so? TIA! I'm not looking to force weaning, by the way.
