Is she weaning?

My 14 month old daughter seems to be less satisfied after nursing than she usually is, I still have good let down and get full if I don't nurse every 5 or 6 hours. Especially at night, she nurses to go to sleep, (no bashing please) but the last month, it seems that I empty before she gets full. I nurse the same amount as I've done before. I'm

Maybe she's going through a growth spurt and your supply just needs a couple of days to catch up

Good luck figuring it out. For something so beneficial, bfing sure ain't easy!

same thing here, DD is 15 months and I can't remember the last time I felt full and DD wants some water/solids with every nursing session. I have just taken it as part of her toddlerhood, she needs more than I have and so long as I have something I will be happy.

Re: Is she weaning?

I'm going through this too. DD is now 15months and I have been dealing with this for awhile now. Some days she'll nurse more than others. Sometimes I feel like she is sooo over it already, KWIM? I keep offering and I feel llike I almost get on her nerves. I'm not sure what to do. I hope someone here can help us. I've done a lot of research on the topic and I think that most babies do go through a stage like this and then will pick up. Please ladies who've done this let us know!! Thanks!

she very well could be going through a growth spurt. Just give it time. BFed babies are very unpredictable one week she could seem like so is totaly unsatisfied w/ the breast and the next week she loves it sooo much she can't get enough of it. Just offer the breast as much as possible and follow her cues.

Also something I do when my DD gets mad at my breast I switch back and fourth between the 2
