I am so grateful that I found this post! THank you everybody--this helps!
Hearing about the similar latching on experiences, makes some sense...
My dd is now 33 months, and over the last few weeks, her latch on just wasn't quite right at times. What she'd do (or does) actually, is *pull* on my nipple...we all know how that feels!
A couple months ago, before any of this, i think I intuitively had the sense my body could use some support, so I increased my Milk Thistle, my Weleda Nursing tea, and took Lactation Support (mix of herbs in liquid form in capsules) by Gaia Herbs.
I slowly let go of taking all the herbs and then recently began to ask my dd and now I have solid confirmation!
"No, no more milk, Mommy"
Mmmm....well, most of what I've heard about milk drying up has had to do with pregnancy and that's not the case! We still nurse at night and certainly wouldn't give it up tomorrow!
Any more info, please pass along...!
