So Jack it's about to turn 1 next Friday and I need help in regards to pumping and continued nursing. I know at one he can have food before nursing. I'm a full time working mom and up till now I've been pumping 3x per day at work and once early in the morning and I still struggle to make the 9oz he's needed daily at daycare. I'm away from him for 10 hours per day and nurse before I drop him off, as soon as we get home, and then as frequently as he'd like while we're together and on weekends.
I've heard you ladies say before that you don't need to pump anymore after one if you don't want to. Well I don't want to lol. What should he get at daycare instead? Milk? Almond milk? Just water? I do plan to quit pumping slowly over the next few weeks (if that's what you advise) and I do plan to continue nursing on demand when we're together and allow him to self wean. So give me your best practices please.
I totally trust you do my breasts future lies in your hands.
