Re: Breastfeeding and menopause?
Welcome! The good news is that milk production is controlled by hormones produced in the brain, not the reproductive organs. You do not need to be fertile in order to produce milk, or to produce good quality milk. So going through menopause shouldn't cause you to have trouble with nursing. That being said, once you hit menopause you're at increased risk for osteoporosis, so I think it might be valuable for you to take a good calcium supplement, since you're giving lots of calcium to your toddler.
There are some normal aspects of breastfeeding that can be mistaken for menopause. Irregular periods and anovulatory cycles are fairly common. And many nursing moms don't get their fertility back for many months. The average time until return of fertility for a breastfeeding mom is about 15.5 months, though many moms get their periods back sooner than that, and many go longer. Some don't get their periods back until their children wean.
