Milk! Milk! I Have Milk!!
I am 30 weeks along right now. I nursed my dd through my last pregnancy and was tandem nursing them both when this pregnancy occured. DD weaned a few months into my pregnancy when she was about three years, three month. She did have some gentle pressuation from me, mostly in the form of distraction, asking her to wait etc. then one day she just suddenly and miraciously started doing two things: falling asleep without nursing and sleeping through the night without nursing. I woh so she was mostly just nursing when I first came home and I started using a timer, which she responded too surpirsingly well. And ok, I'll admit, I started bribing her with hersheys kisses.
Anyway, I alwyas thought they would wean togather as ds2 never seemed attached to it, I mean, he was all business, drink for a few minutes then get back to whatever else he was doing. DD was the one who would nurse for hours literally, but once she weaned, he seemed to become more attached to it. Anyway, he has nursed these last four or so months with no milk coming out. He will crawl into bed with a sippy cup and alternate nursing and sippy cup.
Well, last night I heard him swallwoing and when he pulled off he grabbed a burp towel and wiped his mouth, so I grabbed a nipple and squeezed and I got MILK!! Yeah, ok, it didnt really look like milk, more like cloudy water, but there was liquid there!!!
Just had to share with people who would understand. Just like dd when I was pg. with him, ds2 has been ill more and been constipated since my milk dried up. Im very happy to have it back, even if just a small amount (after a few swallows, he told me "gone, gone!")
