No, Rebecca, it's not silly. I was afraid of the same thing. My LC convinced me to try weaning off of it a little at a time. She said if I felt like I wasn't meeting the demand, returning to the higher dosage would bring it right back up, so there was no risk of running out of milk.
CONGRATS Rebecca! You have done an AMAZING job!!! I know everytime I dropped a pump my BBs would KILL for a few days, and then it went away. Just don't eat any oatmeal!!! LOL I had been done pumping for over a month and I had a bowl of oatmeal and they started killing and leaking! No more oatmeal for me for a while.
The pump is officially in the lake! I quit puming about a month ago. I have a huge freezer stash as she only took about 4oz at the sitters a day in the past few months. We are still BF morning, evening, night and full time on the weekends. We will switch to cows milk once she drinks the frozen BM. We tried cows milk and she took it no problems so I don't see any issues. I do not have a time frame to stop. I enjoy it and my big boobs!
Well, I think that my supply is starting to go away. I guess it couldn't start to happen at a better time since M will be one next week. Typically after he nurses in the morning I pump and I've been using that milk for his cereal. Usually I can get 3-4oz right after he eats in the morning. The past two days I've been struggling to get 1-2...
Sheana - How does it feel to have your lunches back?
It's a breath of fresh air! LOL I actually got to run some errands on my break! I also wouldn't worry too much about a dip. My supply seems to be all over the place, sometimes I can attribute it to my cycle, but not always! I'd say if you want to continue nursing, do so, I'm sure your body will produce what he needs, but you may just not be able to get much more
