Re: No let-down for 17 month old-Is this the end of BFing?
If your baby is still interested in beeboos (cute!) and you're still interested in nursing, then this isn't the end. Your milk supply might be pretty low at this point, since you're generally nursing just a few times a day and your baby is probably getting most of his nutrition from solids. But nursing continues to be a great parenting tool, and a source of bonding, and provides nutrition even if there isn't much milk. A swallow or two of milk may be all your child wants at this point. If you want to increase supply, you can by increasing stimulation to and milk removal from the breast- but that probably means hauling out the pump at work, which is a lot of effort at this point when you really can just nurse for comfort and recreation instead of having to worry about providing your child with a ton of milk.
In short, just enjoy this phase of nursing.
