I work full time, and DS has been getting EBM while I'm at work. He's 11 mos and at his point, I nurse him in the morning and at night. He generally only wants 1-2 bottles of EBM during the day, though when I'm with him on the weekends, he nurses a few more times than that. I pump once daily at work. I'm wondering if I should continue pumping beyond 12 mos. I have no plans to wean at this point, and would at least like to continue our morning and bedtime nursing sessions. I've heard some say it is totally reasonable for them to have cows milk once they are 12 mos, at least during the day. Should I give up the pumping, continue to nurse when I'm home, and just add cows milk during the day when I'm not home? If I give up that pumping session, will I still have enough milk to supply him with morning and nighttime feedings? Or should I just keep on pumping? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
