My seven month old recently started sleeping 12 hrs through the night without nursing. He previously awoke around 4am (after a 7pm bed time) every night for a nursing session. He independently stopped about a week ago and I am worried about my supply. My son is exclusively breastfed, will not take bottles at all, and started solids about two months ago. I have not increased his solids recently, and he has only seemed to add one more short nursing during the day since he started sleeping the 12 hrs. I have noticed that he is wanting to nurse a lot the last two days and my breast have been feeling very empty all of the time. He also seems to be really hungry, grunting and grabbing at my shirt...which he usually only does when he is starving after a long outing that pushed his feeding back. I have also noticed that his diapers are not as soaked as usual.
Anyway, I worry that 12 hrs without nursing every night is going to cause me to loose supply. I really want to nurse beyond one year, so I want to make sure that I am not making a mistake by going so long without nursing.
Thanks in advance for any input/experience that you may wish to share!
