I don't know if I have supply issues, but I always felt with DD that I had barely enough (but why would my body need to produce more than enough?). Same with DS now, but I feel like he is draining me dry less often. I never leak, though, or get engorged (except during his nursing strike), so I definitely don't have oversupply. I just feel that if I let DD drink everything on one side, DS will only get half a meal, and he will have to wait awhile for the side his sister emptied before he can get the rest of his food. Am I thinking wrong?
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
