Please help! I nurse my 18 month old on demand night and day, and have had no supply issues until the last couple of weeks. All of the sudden, she is clawing at my nipples, telling me to start the milk, and getting very frustrated at the breast. Aside from her frustration, I have a general sense that I am not making as much milk as before.
She loves breastfeeding, though she does eat plenty of solids; so I am not particularly interested in weaning. I am not opposed to dry nursing, but I am feeling a lot of discomfort from the clawing and aggressive suckling.
Totally at a loss on what to do. Do I just let nature take its course? Is something possibly wrong after all of these months? Would pumping or fenugreek increase supply again?
So frustrated along with my LO.
