    Default Considering dropping a pump during the day

    I work ft, 8 hours a day. I've been pumping 3 times a day, 8, 11 and 2. I'm considering dropping to 2 times a day. Ds will be 7 months on the 13th. I've had supply issues but thanks to domperidone things are going much better. Is this going to seriously throw off everything?
    I nurse and pump for his morning and try and nurse and pump for his first feeding after work.
    I need to try and drop a feeding because dh and I are going to try and start carpooling plus work is becoming increasingly demanding. Ds has also started on baby food as well.

    Thanks ladies!

    I always just went by how much my DD was talking at daycare. If you can pump what he needs in two sessions, I say go for it!

    I'll be honest and say it could. For me personally my supply dips the less times I pump. But it's a very personal thing. You can always give it a try for a week or two and go back to 3 times a day if it's not working.

    I say do whatever you feel is best! I also work FT and pump, but my puming is never on a schedule, as I don't ever get a let down while pumping. Basically I pump about 2-3 hours after I last fed him, and this gets me about 1 oz. Then within ten minutes I feel a let down when I'm back at my desk, so I race back to the restroom and pump again, and this gets me 3-4 oz. After that I'll usually have another let down again before the work day is overwith, and I do the same thing. It's such a pain in the butt... but well worth it for my LO!
