So I did end up weaning DD3 from nursing and switched to bottles of pumped milk mixed with whole milk. It seems to be going fine except she still doesn't STTN and making bottles is such a PITA! I feel more relaxed though and I am happy with our new relationship
Anyway, I have been pumping twice a day - once in the morning and once before bed. I was getting 5oz each time for a total of 10 for the day. She takes about 4-5 4oz bottles/day so it was basically half and half. Now a few days later and I am not getting quite as much when I pump which I guess makes sense. Now I seem to get 3oz each time for a total of 6oz/day.
For some reason I am feeling like 6oz/day isn't really worth it but 10oz seemed better (not sure why...it's only 4oz). Anyway, I don't want to pump more to get more because quite honestly pumping is becoming annoying. I end up forgetting at night and then have to pump when I am totally exhausted and wanting to go to bed.
So on to my point finally - do you think it's worth it for 6oz/day? She takes the whole milk fine. I know ANY amount of BM is good but IDK....if it were winter I would continue because I feel like it would offer immunity from colds and illness but so far (luckily) we are all in good health.
So WWYD? Would you keep going or just phase it out?
