    Question Does not want to nurse with period?

    DS (13.5 months old) has not wanted to nurse (only once right before his nap), and lo and behold I have started my period for the first time since before I was pregnant. Has anyone else had a nursing strike while they were on their period?

    My lo didn't like it when I first got my period again. I think the hormones can alter the taste and can sometimes cause a temporary dip in your supply. I just kept encouraging my lo to keep nursing and after the first few days she got back to normal. After a few periods she doesn't seem to even notice it anymore.

    Thanks! I didn't think I was the only one who has had that. We co-sleep and he nursed his usual amount last night.
