I posted this on the BFing board but no responses...
When I was home with DS2 for maternity leave I built my stash for going back to work by having him nurse on one side for the first feed of the day while I pumped the other side. I've kept this up and want to stop within the next few weeks (my stash is at about 1300+ ounces and I'm running out of room for it).
I'm trying to figure out how to drop this pump. If it was a regular 2 breast pumping session, I'd just slowly reduce the time, but this one is a bit different. I essentially have 6 oz of milk in each breast in the morning--DS2 nurses 6oz from one side and I pump 6oz from the other. I alternate which side gets pumped/nursed. So how do I go about dropping the pumping part? I want to go slow b/c I easily get clogs and mastitis. I want to essentially go from each breast producing 6 oz to each one producing 3 oz (DS2 nursing on both sides, getting about 3 oz from each side--this is what he does for most other feeds).
(I think ECUGirl did this pump while nurse strategy--how did you stop?)
