    Default breastfeeding question late in the game

    sudden drop in well established milk supply. Anyone have experience with possible pregnancy contributing to a sudden drop early on. I think its too early to test but I just cant figure this out. Sieann is almost 11 months and loves to nurse all day it seems, little snacks but lately she has been frustrated at the breast smacking on it and then biting, being impatient for what seems like a longer let down. So I guess my question is could this be a early sign that I am pregnant. tHIS would be my first real fertile month since the baby, I had my IUD taken out the end of last month and noticed a lot of spinn this month. we werent trying but obviously not not trying. Although I would be excited I would hate for our hard earned nursing relationship to dwindle. the thought brings me to tears, I had hoped to blw. THANKS MAMAS

    Has AF returned? That is often the culprit for some moms....

    Do you still feel your letdown? I ask because I don't anylonger, and so I wonder of you don't either, what baby is doing could be discomfort from a tooth coming in or something similar....

    ohhh I dont know why that hadn't occurred to me. we are always in teething hell. one a month. and yes the top right is coming in. However I definitely dont feel let down. I hear her swallowing and thats usually after three or four returns to the buffet table, she has been very impatient waiting for the milk but will crawl back for another attmept.Does that make sense. I guess Im in that waiting pool where only time will tell. I just did not expect a sudden change like this that is if I am even preggos... a long weekend is coming up.

    yes I was feeling let down as early as four days ago, she was up all night to thrashing around, unsatisfied. Maybe a growth spurt? I really hope that if I am pg we can continue for a while. thanks for your response!
