Said by my 2 1/2 year old DD this morning.

It's true. They don't have much milk in them anymore, and I DD has started to wean, although she keeps asking for the booboos. She tries, but there just isn't anything anymore.

I'm sad, because I'm not really ready for us to wean, but what can I do about it?

I didn't have any words for ya mama but thought lots of hugs and hearts would help, if only breifly...

My dd just turned 2 and she is a once a day girl, rarely twice a day so I feel our nursing is slowly ending too.....and I'm not ready either....I totally didn't think I would nurse at all, let alone not want to stop now...Just takes hold of ya and tugs at the heart.......

MANY MORE HUGS....

My 34 month old dd is saying "there's no tea in this one, I want that one (points to other boob)". It saddens me, but also I'm ready. I knew it would be bittersweet.

OH man I can empathize> I am pregnant, and my milk went away around 14 weeks or so, and it was so heartbreaking to see my daughter get said and say "where go" or where milk go." My milk is coming back, but she isn't very interested, and i am so heartbroken over it.

Have you tried boosting your milk?

(If you mean me, I have. I am hoping my daughter starts nursing more, especially after the baby comes.)

Lol, no I crossposted with you. There's not much you can do to boost milk while pregnant anyway.

I'm going to try Fenugreek. It has helped me before.

My oldest just weaned a few weeks ago. She would often latch on and say "I don't hear anything." LOL After trying to correct her, she'd say "I don't hear anything coming out." Poor girl. She never got it straight before giving up the boob.

I'd take Fenugreek and try to get my milk to let down quickly after she latched. Both seemed to help.

My little girl has occasionally told me that I have no milk over the past several months, but she is definitely not weaned. Maybe it's just a fluctuation in your milk production?
