i'm 12 weeks, i think
ds's patterns have changed. sometimes he's going a lot longer between nursings, other times he wants it every hour. almost every time though he wants both sides, so i think my supply is dropping.
i get tender nipples sometimes, especially with sidelying nursing for some reason??? so i really dislike having to nurse him on both sides every time he wakes up in the night (wakes 1-3 times at night). if i lie down it hurts more, but if i sit up i wake up more.
most of the time, though, nursing is comfortable. i just wish he would do it a little less often, and only do one side per session.
i am worried about whether my supply will suddenly dry up at some point - he doesn't take more than a few sips of water through a straw or sippy cup every day. i don't think it would be easy for him to suddenly need to drink more water, or for us to introduce cow milk.
editing to add: ds is 21 mo, btw. and he also wants to fiddle while nursing. he was doing this long before i got pregnant, but it's really getting on my nerves now! he needs to pinch, pull, rub, or just touch a mole that's between my breasts. every nursing session is a struggle between us for me to keep him off my mole. he'll even do it while mostly asleep with his eyes closed and no other motion in his body... one little hand will be working away to get at that mole. so it's hard for me to using nursing sessions as a time to relax and rest because i'm always on edge about this.
