    Default Dropping to one feed a day..

    I'm looking for some reassurance....I'm about to drop an afternoon breastfeed with my 11 month twins, which will mean that I now only breastfeed once a day at 7am (they have always had a bottle of formula in the evening). I'm worried that by dropping this feed my body might quit breastfeeding altogether. I'd like to keep giving the morning feed until they are 1.

    So...have others found that feeding only once a day for a while was okay? Did your body adjust?

    My supply dropped off (to the point of no return, which I was ok with) when I tried this with my then 9mo. Attempted to only do the 7am feed and lasted less than 2 weeks before it was over.
    Maybe seek some advise on increasing supply if you'd like to continue x
