still going strong, well EPing that is (not by choice
. My supply is currently tanking and my DD is upset
. I don't know how long I will still have a reasonable amount of milk. Until 16mths I easily made over 30oz, then AF came for the first time and was down to between 22-25oz. And each month AF came I would loose just a bit more. Last cycle when I was preggers and MCed I went down to around 15-18oz and just yesterday at 21.5mths I am down to only 11oz
These preg hormones are doing a real number on my supply. I have already been at this for way longer than I thought I could maintain just pumping. It has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do, pumping 4hrs a day + bottle feeding + bottle & pump part cleaning
. Just thinking about it makes me want to cry
. I told my hubbie that if I KNEW that the next baby I would have to EPump for I would not have anymore kids, formula is just NOT an option I want to entertain, if I can make milk I will find a way to do it
I have read soo much on
and am SOOOO looking forward to BFing this new bean. It is really all I can think about since I am still pumping 1.5hrs each day.

I would TOTALLY tandum & CLW. I think it is just the most natural course of things. Being smack in the middle of MLW due to my dwindling supply I KNOW this is not the best way for my DD. She would nurse for many years to come if allowed, she shows NO signs of really being ready to wean but I just don't have any more milk and she WONT nurse so we are stuck. I wish their were other options.
How's everyone else's supply? Have the babes been acting strange, switching sides alot, asking for more milk, just being a bit more fussy?
