Re: Still nursing? Ideas for keeping supply up please

DD is still happily nursing even though my supply is obviously dropping! My boobs are emptier and saggier lol but she doesn't seem to care. She tells me she's going to share her boobies with "baby brother-sister." It's the sweetest thing ever. Hopefully all that means she's not ready to wean any time soon!

DDC- lots of water... avoid sage, peppermint. eat almonds and oatmeal... and 2-4 cookies a day (seriously, it can't hurt)...

Oh dear, yeah, if he's that little I'd want to keep going too! Levi's 16mos old, will be 2 just after Bug's dd, so I'm not really worried about it with him.
I don't think he's going to wean on his own, but we'll work on it in another few months.

I don't think those are really great indicators. I have had the same things happening for months and months now, and Levi's been nursing the same as normal. The only time I actually noticed a real dip and him reacting to it (getting aggravated while nursing, not satisfied, etc) was right before AF was starting.
