I recently nightweaned dd2 who is 21 months. It has been going very well. More sleep yeah! However, I think that it affected the amount I pump when I am at work (3x/week). I usually pump (on a good day and not around AF) 4 oz. Other times it's ~2 oz.
She is happy to drink that at lunch from a glass with the babysitter. When I didn't have it for her she was pretty upset about it and kept asking for it.
I was going to pump until she was around 2, but now when I have been pumping it is almost nothing, not even a letdown.
When I pump nothing it seems like a complete waste of my time at work and I feel like I could have gotten xyz done instead of getting no milk pumped. This makes me want to hang up the pump for good.
She does nurse when she wakes up, when I get home from work, 1-2x before bed, and at bed. Then on the days I am off she gets it whenever she wants. She does most days eat pretty good, but has a pretty limited diet due to food intolerances.
I do try to get lots of fats and protein into her. It is the calcium I am worried about. She doesn't do much leafies (spinach mainly, smoothie form) and she's been getting little broccoli now as she spits it out most of the time ( I think teething related).
Should worry about a sub (hemp, coconut?) or just have her drink water? We don't give her juice.
We don't want to do soy and goat yogurt didn't go over well digestively.
Thanks for any advice mamas!
