How long do you plan/hope to pump for?
If you are also breastfeeding, how long do you plan to nurse for?




I have stopped pumping, but I hope to nurse Juliet until at least 18 months, I think. If she doesnt wean by 2ish I'll probably try to wean her. I'm amazed we've even gotten this far! My initial goal was only 12 months, then I thought I'd only make it til 6.

well, pumping was done in April, and we're winding down HE'ing. After going a few days in between HE sessions, I tasted the milk and it doesn't taste sweet anymore. I think we're almost done. I'm kinda sad.

does milk taste change as you wean? hmm I had never thought about that

I know Juliet is still getting milk, but I think it's mostly comfort now and I'm afraid she'll wean prematurely since I'm working

I'd like to pump until the point that I have enough milk in storage to last him until he turns one. I'm hoping I can stop pumping at work before the holidays, my freezer stash is getting pretty big! I plan to breasfeed until age one, and then just kinda go from there.

I'm hoping to last until she's 1, but right now we take it week by week since I dont pump out alot right now. Nursing I'm also hoping to last until she's 1 and after if possible.

my goal was always to pump BM at work and BF until they were 1 and then take it from there. Alex was tough ... I only just made it with the pumping and he stopped BF'ing when he was 14months, but by then I was 5months pregnant with Ollie and had to go away for work for 2 nights. Ollie I pumped till 13months and continued to BF until he was 20months old. I'm happy that they were both happy and had a great start.
