Well the end of my pumping days are in sight! Kassidy will turn a year old at the end of January so I'm starting to think about how I'm going to wean off the pump. I plan to continue nursing when we are together but I am looking forward to HUTH. So here is my plan... I'd love to hear feedback about if this will work etc.
Right now Kassidy eats about 12oz while I'm away. I work M-Th and drop her off with my dad at about 6:45AM and pick her up at 3:45 so we are apart about 9 hours. On T and Th I go and see her at lunch so there is potential to nurse her then if necessary. Right now I the other side. I then pump twice a day usually at about 9:30AM and 1:30AM.
My plan is to continue sending 12oz through November. In December I plan to stop pumping in the morning and start sending 9oz. In January I am going to only pump once at around 11AM and plan to send about 6oz a day. Then, in February I plan to stop pumping (Yay) and send whatever is left in my freezer stash until it is gone. I'll also introduce cows milk to ease the transition.
What do you think? Will this work?
