I have been going strong for 9 months and 16days. But I think my milk is starting to dry up. Monkey is nursing more and for less amount of time. 15-30 mins after she nurses she screams and screams I put her back to the breast and she stops. Nurses and then 15-30mins later she is screaming again. She use to eat 6 times a day 30-40 mins at a time. Now it is like 5-10 mins flat both sides. Her diaper count is good though. Plus before I switch her from one breast to the other she bites me as if she is made that my breast may be empty. I tried hand suppressing and I got barley anything. I have been taking fenugreek like 4 times a day. I wanted so badly to make it to a year. Even Dh is trying to talk me into weening her and putting her on formula. His is because mainly the biting. I know this is a babbling mess of a post my thought are all over the place. I am just not ready to give up the bond we share. Or pay for the price of formula. And I also feel like a failure.
