    When to stop Eping?
    EpingRN posted:
    My baby is 4 months old, but I have been Eping since he was 2 months old. Long story short, I had multiple issues with breastfeeding, Eping was oddly easier (for me), and I have a great supply. My goal was to do it until he is a year. My question is should I go longer than that, and if so how much should I be pumping? I really don't see any reason to start him on cows milk (exclusively) at a year if I can still give him breastmilk.

    I breastfed my middle child till 19mths (usually only at night by that point) while slowly introducing cows milk....I found the change was much easier on her tummy as they tend to get constipated when you switch from breast to cows milk. Good Luck!
