I became pregnant with this baby when DS was 17 months old. We had been nursing successfully and I had a very abundant supply. He is still "nursing", even though there is nothing (or maybe just a little colostrum) there. I'm worried because I've only noticed a little colostrum on 2 occasions in the last couple months. I'm so worried that my breasts won't "work" this time. As I type this, I realize that sounds ridiculous. But with DS, my milk didn't come in for 5 days after his birth. I was so scared then that something was wrong with me, but when it did, it came full force. My breasts have not grown in size at all this time, they are still soft and mushy (not firm like I remember from last pregnancy). Dos anyone know if it ever happens that a woman is unable to nurse after already nursing successfully? I think that's probably pretty unlikely, I'm just really worried about it.
