I'm not sure what your currently pumping schedule is, or how flexible it is to change, but what I did when I weaned from the pump was I slowly moved my morning pump which was usually between 9 and 10 later and later in the morning and then my afternoon pump I started moving a little later in the afternoon, but really focused on pumping for less time during that afternoon pump.

Thanks. Right now, I'm pumping at like 10:00/3:00 or 10:30/3:30. I was hoping to cut it down to one lunch-time pump. I work 8-4 and take lunch around 11:30, so I'd be pumping around 11:30-12:00.

I think that's a good idea - I'll start only pumping for like 10 minutes on my 3:00 pump and then gradually cut it off.

Given your schedule already, you really shouldn't have much of a problem at all moving to just one pump by the end of the month.
