okay, this is probably a silly question, but I'm on baby #1 so never done this before. DS is weaning, he's been nursing once a week or so for a few weeks now. My breasts have been feeling really heavy and full so I assumed I was still producing plenty of milk, and when I give them a test squeeze milk comes out. DS has been acting strange about nursing lately, like taking a sip then pointing at it and saying "Milk" and then another sip and "All gone" and I had no idea why because there was still milk in there. So out of curiosity mostly, I tried pumping today and nothing happened. I tried a bit longer and finally got a few drops out and it was about the consistency of condensed milk, the thick syrup like stuff in the cans. Is that normal? and also, could I build up my supply again at this point? He's not quite ready to be done yet, and he's only 20 months so I'm not quite ready for him to be done yet either. What can I do?
I guess I'm a Mom... how strange and wonderful.
