Re: not much milk
- He's not telling you the truth about there being no milk- 3 year-olds often don't tell you the whole story
- At age 3 he's become too impatient to wait for a letdown
- He's self-weaning- losing interest in working for a letdown can be how weaning starts
- You're pregnant...? That can kill supply.
If your LO gets upset when there's "no more milk" you can either encourage him to nurse more and work harder at the breast or you can start pumping and up your supply that way. You could also try fenugreek, blessed thistle, and oatmeal, all of which help some moms increase supply. Provided you're not pregnant, that is, since if your supply decreases due to pregnancy there's nothing you can do about it.
