Hi. My DS(2) still nurses, night and day. My daytime supply dropped pretty rapidly after implantation, but nighttime is still OK for now (it's always been much better, for me). I had supply issues, so I am really sensitive about losing the milk I worked so hard to establish. I am keeping my vitamin B6 intake low (only 5 mg/d for now, unless I become violently ill with m/s) to avoid putting the extra (potential) strain on my supply that B6 can do at high doses.

Then she will be done. She will also be attached to the boob for like half the night. Not so great on the old nips! Any ideas? Suggestions?
DS did something like that for a few weeks. But he switched sides, like, 50 times during each nursing session. It was so tiring! He loved the autonomy of being able to do it himself. Later, I found out that he figured out that when one side lets down, so does the other, and he liked to switch midstream... maybe he likes the foremilk better... I dunno. Anyhow, it lasted a few weeks, and slowly died down when the novelty wore off. Didn't see how old DD was... is she teething? DS is attached all night when he's teething. G/L
