I have one son who is 10 months old. I have been pumping 3 times a day every day at work since he was six weeks so that he can have bottles for daycare. He eats from me through the evening and night and of course weekends. He has started to eat a lot of solids and table foods.
My husband and I are TTC baby number 2 and I was planning on weaning my son at 12 months. What is the best way to about this? I don't want him to lack the nutrition he needs and I don't want to be engorged and miserable with mastitis or something like that.
Should I wait until he is 12 months and start replacing some of his day care bottles/cups with whole milk and slowly cut out my pumps at work? Or should I continue to pump for daycare and slowly take away feedings in the evenings? He eats with me around 4 or 5 times in the evenings. So really he is only at the breast on week days an average of 5 or 6 times. He of course eats with me all day sa
When he turns 12 months you can just stop pumping during the day. This alone may make you fertile again (fyi if you are getting periods then you are already fertile). Next you could night wean. That will usually bring your period back. Here are a couple of good articles for you:
