unfortunatly, I lost my supply when my baby was almost 11 months. I tried whole organic cows milk which gave her diarriah and a bad diaper rash, then goats milk which she wouldn't drink. She eats a whole lotta solid food, but not enough. I finally broke down and bought her some soy-based formula. She gulps it down. I had hoped to continue to dry nurse her, but she won't nurse. When I can convince her to, she latches on, bites down (luckily no teeth yet!) and laughs. I am so sad. I had hoped to tandem nurse, but if she won't nurse, I guess I won't be able to do that. I am so sad she only got breastmilk for about 10 months....that is soooooooooooooooo short!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am really very sad about it. And I just can not believe why anyone would wean a baby (not toddler) purposefully and then have to mess with formula. She only gets about three bottles a day (that's all she needs) and it is a pain....I would love to be able to just lift my shirt and latch her on. Oh well. If she won't nurse when the new baby arrives, I hope to pump and feed my milk to her in a cup....hopefully she will drink it!
