My 19 mo old still regularly nurses but only for his one nap, before bed, sometime in the night (co-sleepers) and when waking up. Every once in awhile he will nurse randomly during the day. He switches sides CONSTANTLY now (used to spend a lot of time on one side) and seems to get frustrated/ impatient. Does this mean my supply is dwindling? I've tried using some lactation teas and drinking more water but it hasn't changed his behavior. Does this tend to happen with toddlers who mainly nurse at sleep times? My last baby nursed until 22 months but I don't remember the fussiness over sides etc.


I'm for self-lead weaning but he doesn't seem ready for it at all yet (still will only go to sleep if he's nursing. Or in the car.). He also refuses to drink milk (fine with me) and doesn't really care for vegan milks, So he drinks water, and nurses. The pediatrician is totally supportive of that (no milk) because of how much he was still nursing, but now I am worried he may not be getting enough. Thoughts?
