I feel so naieve - but how does everyone know when their supply is low? My ds is 7 1/2 months old and still nurses almost as frequently as he did as a three month old. - well, that's not entirely true - he doesn't while I am at work, but makes up for lost time in the evenings and all night long.
I ask because I just don't have that "full" feeling anymore, and don't get that surge/spasm sensation when it's time for him to nurse. Also, it seems as if everyone else seems to just "know" and I am just hangin' in here hoping for the best, when maybe he is just nursing for comfort and I don't know it.
I don't pay a whole lot of attention to what I get when I pump because it is always inconsistent - I hate that thing to this day! - but I do it almost every day trying to make it to one year. I have the Madela double-electric top-of the-line-don't-know-the-name-one. - Spent the bucks for it (hope that helps to describe it) one.
