I am just curious what BF'ing looks like for those who are doing this with their 12-24 month old. My long term BF'ing goal was a year, but after doing some research, I am thinking about aiming for 2 years as a stretch goal.
I am 8 months out, and have been able to keep up my supply since going back to work full-time, three months ago. I've barely made a dent in my freezer stash, (but I've been rotating the stock, and its at about 700 oz.) and am wondering if there is anything I can or should be doing now to enable me to continue to BF past a year.
I am specifically curious to know how often you nurse a 12 month old, and an 18 month old. When do they drop nursing sessions? If you work full time, when do you drop pumping sessions?
Right now, I pump three times while at work, but occasionally I can only do it two times on a given day. My son eats (meaning nurses or bottle feeds EBM) between 6-7 times a day, and he takes 3, 5oz bottles while I work. I am sorta hoping he won't be eating as much at 12 months, and that I would be able to go down to 1-2 pumping sessions in a workday. I also pump one side (LO nurses from the other) every morning, which helps make up for the occasional missed session.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
