Huh, interesting...I always thought the milk stopped for a bit before turning to colostrum. Anyway, I hope that you are able to find some kind of balance. There is still a ways to go, so maybe you can come up with some gentle guiding in terms of helping her to make the choice? I think I've seen a thread or two like that around while searching.
For us, I imagine that once we actually stop being sick, DS will cut down on nursing significantly. He has gone from eating one meal per day plus some snacks here and there, to devouring huge amounts of food at every meal and asking for snacks. He nurses often-ish still, but it's mostly for comfort since he is sick. He is easily distracted and will ask to nurse sometimes, and then totally forget about it two seconds later, even if I have my boob out! I know that he's not taking much milk since he's only swallowing sporadically, and his wet diapers have almost disappeared completely. He does, however still depend heavily on nursing at nap time and through out the night, or at least the early morning hours.
I had assumed that when this baby came that I would have a baby on one side and a toddler on the other side at all times for the first few weeks at least. It's now looking like that might change....although if DS doesn't wean completely, it probably will still happen that way. I still seem to have plenty of milk at this point.
On a positive note, my nipples aren't particularly soar, except for when DS marathon nurses in the early morning...but can't keep a good latch because of his cold. Which is further complicated by the fact that he chipped his front teeth last year, so there is a really jagged edge there!
How is everyone else doing?
