I think what my body is really craving is more protein, so I'll try and get more of that from whole foods to see if that cuts back my milk craving.
I just feel hungry all the time lately, and produce tons of breastmilk. Even though my four week old is already 14 pounds, I have enough milk right now to nurse two of him...
I know that is actually a blessing, but I am grazing all day long lately and feel like I am "missing" some unidentified food/vitamin/mineral that I can't put my finger on.
Thanks for your help,

I also had TONS of milk. I thought I could exclusively bf at least 3-4 babies ! It was hard! My boobs were ready to blow up 24/7 for at least 4 months. My baby was constantly chocking. I was advised to express some milk before bfing my baby, so he wouldn't chock, but this was such a bad advice at least for my body; it freaked out completely, probably thinking that the baby began suddenly consuming that much more milk and my body started producing few TONS more milk then before. It was NASTY ...Then it got better… and better .
Good luck !
