Dropping to 3x a Day

Filed Under How To Pump |

Well, I took the plunge and did this nearly a fortnight ago and so far so good.  I’m now pumping at about 7am, about 3pm and then around 11pm.  It’s so great!  The best bit (and I know I could have done this sooner) is not pumping in bed anymore.  I used to take the pump up with me and pump whilst sitting in bed. Stupid, stupid habit.  The freedom is superb.  

My supply has dropped a little but it doesn’t really matter because Babybum is beginning to reduce her intake, preferring fruit and toast.  I’m not freezing any at the moment and, deep breath here, am actually throwing milk down the plug hole.  My freezer is full of milk and Babybum is already approaching 11 months so I just don’t see the point.

I’m starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel but am also beginning to get to grips with the feelings I have about actually completely weaning myself from the pump.  Hmm… this is a strange one:  I hate pumping yet I’m saddened by the thought of stopping (that mere thought frequently brings me to tears).  Perplexing.
