I have gotten so much good information and help from you all, but have never needed to post until now.
I am wondering how to go about the process of weaning - I have always had a problem with OS and want to wean in a way that I don't get engorged because I have a tendency to get mastitis (4 times in 16 months). My LO is now 16 mo, nursing 3X a day (morning, afternoon nap, and bedtime). I tried to cut out the afternoon nursing, but was so FULL several hours later that I caved in and nursed him anyways. I wonder if just cutting down the amount of times spent nursing eventually works (we've recently gone from nursing 2+ hrs a day to 1 hour total)? I wonder if I am just going to have to go several days with feeling very full before my body decides to produce less milk? I don't want to wean him completely yet, but we are TTC and I have not had AF, and I am thinking that if I get him nursing less I might inspire ovulation. Does anyone out there have advice for weaning with OS - how did you do it and still be reasonably comfortable? PS - I have also tried sage tea, it does not always help to decrease the milk I produce.
