    Default Taking Fen and Alfalfa and still...

    It seems my supply is going down. Wyatt is not nusing less, een at almsot 14 months, so I hae NO clue what is goin on!! He has been nursing all day, and whining because he has not gotten much. I did get AF back after 2 years, but she is gone now. Could it still affect it? (I have never had to worry about this, as my other 2 never nursed past 3 months)

    HELP! I am not ready for him to waen, and really, he is not either lol.

    What makes you think he isn't getting enough or "much"? At about 12-13 months my son started nursing like a newborn again! I added more solid food snacks to his day and he balanced out again. But thats just what worked for us.

    Could you be pregnant?

    NO NO NO lol.

    I don't feel a let down and I still have been feeling it until a couple days ago. He eats food and snacks, so I know he is getting a tummy full. Yea, he is nursing a lot! I just feel dry...does that make sense? I am just hoping that is it a phase my body is going through!

    Stress can lower your supply. Are you taking time for yourself (as hard as that is)?

    Sure trying to. I did have a nice hot bath alone last night. Unfortunately, DH whines whenever I try to have "me" time. I forgive him, he grew up in a house where his dad controlled his mom's every move. But I still do it anyway lol.

    I have ben a little stressed lately, maybe that could be a part of it.
