You may have read my other posts here about our trouble with BF, mainly supply. We had to supplement with formula for a few weeks and now we only supplement with BM as my supply grew. My last post was about oversupply in the am and hoping to even it out through the day.
Well the last several days LO has only needed to supplement about 3 oz in the evening, we've been able to drop 1/2 our daily bottles. I have also filled the freezer with a weeks supply of BM and I have no intention of returning to work so I think it may end up going to waste.
I was thinking about dropping my first am pump which is usually around 3am. It would shorten the MOtN routine by about 30 mins and get me some extra sleep. LO would still nurse I just wouldn't pump and then I would still nurse AND pump the rest of the day.
My fear is that this pump is my highest volume, usually round 4ozs. I'm afraid not pumping will cause me to loose it and then what If LO starts drinking more in a few weeks and I need it?
FWIW we usually get up again around 6 and I pump about 2ozs after that feeding. The rest of the days pumps are under 1oz.
