We made it to exclusively 6 1/2 month of ebfding !! I'm excited about that bc I only made it 10 weeks with my son .

She's now 7 months 1 week and she's not nursing anymore :( my milk is almost gone . I had supply issues at around 5 months but it just got worse :( .

Stress really affects my supply
:(.
But she's still really happy and that's all that matters !!!

Oh & are you on any hormonal bc or could you be pregnant? Those are common reasons for supply to diminish.  Your milk just doesn't disappear overnight though, I've not bf in over a year & still have milk there, I can't get it out with a pump nor can I squeeze any out but ti's there.

Awesome job! I made it to 11 months... though lil man weaned himself. If I had it my way I would still be nursing him but he wasn't having that

Yeah no medical condition bc when I started aupplementing her diapers when up .


Quoting lilahsmommie:

That sounds like a medical issue. Her body should produce more urine than that without consuming anything.. Try pumping a little before offering her the breast. That way let down doesn't take long. Just pump long enough to stimulate let down. Also, most babies can completely drain your breast in less than 10 minutes. They were very efficient and good @ what they do.

You did fine. If you WANT to try again, an internationally board certified lactation consultant is the person to see... NOT your doc.
