My 11 month old DD has always nursed on demand. We've been having sleep issues for the last month. Last night was horrendous, she would not settle down to go to sleep and once she did sleep it was very light. Today she is eating waaaay more solids than she ever has. About a week ago I noticed she was peeing a little less, but I took it as a sign that she needed more water (she drinks maybe an ounce all day, mostly just plays with water). Now she's wetting about 6 or more diapers a day, but I can't help but wonder if my supply is going down? How would I know? I do feel a let down when she nurses, but is it enough?

Have you started taking hormonal birth control? Any sort of medication? Are you staying hydrated?
