Your milk will change but it doesn't have to dry up. If you keep nursing you will keep having milk. Some women have sensitive nipples and they cut back or stop nursing and that's why their milk "drys up."
But, he is still nursing a couple times a day and I'm starting to make colostrum.. I suspect he will start nursing more once baby is here and I have a full supply again.

I blog about our life with food allergies and eosinophilic disorders.
Dried up in my 2nd. month. And I pumped as much as I could to prevent that- nothing. Later on it became extremely painful, very sensitive, so I stopped pumping as well- the view cc's I would get.
I did unfortunately. I second the suggestions of nursing to try and prevent it but it might just happen regardless of what you do.
