Re: I think my 1 yr old is starting to wean!
Flaccid. That's a funny word!

Once everything settled down he got back to his normal nursing schedule. I used a bit of fenugreek to help my supply, and ate a lot of oatmeal cookies. The cool thing is once you're been nursing for a year your milk adjusts to supply and demand. It WILL come back as much as your LO needs.
Nurse on demand, and even nurse before solids at this point that's my recommendation. I also cut back on the sippy cup. I was giving water in a sippy all day long, and I switched and now only offer water at meals. It really did encourage him to nurse more often and for longer.
Really you will get through this. 12 months is rough there are a lot of changes, but I can promise you it gets better. Nursing a toddler is so awesome, I can't even explain it. I LOVE nursing him and want to nurse him as long as I can if it feels this great for both of us.
Hang in there, make some adjustments, and congrats on the 1 year nursing milestone.
