I'm curious, and not finding any kinds of stats on this.
ETA: I mean, losing like you had to put your DC on formula. If you experienced a decrease that didn't need supplementation, please choose "No."

I had milk for naptime for quite awhile after that....I would say though probably a couple months later it was pretty much no milk all the time and that is when she cut way back on her nursing. She was pretty much weaned (asking maybe once every few days) when ds arrived.

As for my supply, DS didn't start solids until he was 8.5 mos old, and I knew he was gaining and growing. I'd say toward the 3rd trimester, he'd nurse for just a minute, and that was enough so I would guess my supply was down. I'm glad he suckled, though, because I was afraid if he stopped, he wouldn't start up again once my milk was in full force.
The best feeling I had was when DH brought my 3 children, including my son mentioned above, to the hospital to see me and the new baby - all eyes were on the baby of course, but I grabbed my son and scooped him up into my lap and he nursed like crazy from then on - and still does!
