Ripley is 15 1/2 months and nurses in the afternoon, evening, and all night. while I agree that breastmilk is best, does she need it at daycare? she is currently offered 1-2 bottle/cup from DH in the morning (I leave at 4:30am) and one cup at daycare. then she breastfeeds from 4pm on. she also eats a very healthy 3 meals plus snacks (though lately not very much eating due to molars).

so does she need the expressed milk during the day?

I have heard of people stopping pumping at 1 year and just having the caretaker offer either water or another type of milk. Then when mom and baby are together they just nurse. You could give water, cow milk, or any other type of milk like rice,soy, coconut..

I pumped for 19 months and then she got plain unsweetened soy milk. If your LO is eating enough and nursing the other times of the day, it is not necessary per se for them to have the expressed milk or any other milk, unless you want them to.

Definitely not necessary, although it would be slightly beneficial, but I guess you have to weigh it with the time and inconvenience of pumping. Personally I think if I did not WFH, Juliana would have been getting almond or rice milk during the day after 12 months or so.

This is a decision my DH and I just made (DS turned 1 a few weeks ago). We decided I would stop pumping during the day, and DS would get whole cow's milk during the afternoon while I am at work. He nurses twice in the morning before I leave, when I get home (around 5) and before bed. I just wasn't getting enough milk pumping at work to make it worth it, personally.

After thinking about it more, I really do want her to get the milk. So I'm still going to pump once. That provides enough for what she usually has during the day anyway. I really think what she needs is as much mamas milk as she wants! But I just won't worry about it too much.
