Leo is just about 14 months. I've been pumping since I went back to work when he was 8 weeks old ... and I think I'm ready to stop. I still plan to nurse when I'm with him in the evenings and on weekends. But what should I give him to drink at day care? Will he get enough nutrients from evening/nighttime nursing? He still wakes up during the night once or twice to nurse, but not for very long.<br><br>
I don't really want to give him juice, and am thinking water and organic milk?<br><br>
Any suggestions would be appreciated. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I would probably just do water during the day and encourage him to increase his nursing during the eves/nights. If he is nursing 4+ times daily he can still get plenty of milk!<br><br>
CONGRATS and GOOD JOB on pumping that long <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I'm sure you already know this, but be sure to wean slooooooowly off the pump. If you do it so quickly you could face ingorgement issues, or even worse--- a drastic drop in supply.
