I live in Italy and since my child turned 5 months my pediatrician told me that I would gradually introduce solids and nurse less in the 24 hours. my baby is now 7 months old. on average I nurse him at 8pm, 2 am, sometime between 7-9am, sometimes I nurse in the afternoon (most times). this means that on the average day I nurse him 4 times a day. My menstrual period came for the first time 2 days ago, the day after he has turned 7 months. My question is now that my periods have returned do I have less milk, or do I risk losing it. It still seems to be a good supply but I would like to nurse him for a few months still if possible. I know of many woman who nurse only at night in when the child first wakes and they still don't have their cycles.
