The other thread got me wondering how common this might be. My 19 month old is not currently nursing, quit about a month ago. However as I mentioned before he sometimes "checks" to see if there is milk there. I really believe he is checking for milk because he will put his mouth on my nipple, then run to the kitchen and ask for something to drink. He still remembers that something used to come out of mama LOL! So, I keep letting him "check". Did you have a child who did this and resumed nursing once your milk returned? How old was the child? How long had they stopped nursing?
