My 2 year old is nursing now very infrequently. Say, maybe once a day, or once every two days. He mostly likes to nurse after his nap. So far, I seem to still have milk. Has anybody had any experience with this frequency of nursing, and if so, for how long did your supply hold up? I'm just curious how infrequent nursings have to become before I dry out.

Your body adapts to demand, so you should continue having milk until your child stops nursing altogether, unless you get pregnant.
