My LO is 15 months, and we nursed pretty much on demand until I went back to work 3 months ago. At that point, based on some great advice I got here, I continued three sessions a day: morning, after work and before bed. My supply was dramatically affected, but he was still getting milk for sure (as evidenced by his attempt to "milk" me one day...much to my horror! Haha).
So my question is two part... When he gets up in the morning he NEVER wakes up happy, immediately cries and completely rejects dad. Once I have nursed him he is right as rain, super happy and asking for Dada. This is similar when we get home after work, he is fine until we step in the door. He immediately gets fussy and starts to almost cry until we nurse. I'm happy to keep nursing for the time being (my second q is related to this point), but am worried about the transition when we wean?
And second, he is such an active nurser, switching from side to side and back again. I am really beginning to wonder if I have no milk left! How would I know?? He often will sign milk after attempting to nurse which makes me really wonder if he gets anything?
Your input and advice is appreciated!!
