Every once in awhile my son will say that there's no more milk in one of them. I've been taking fenugreek but at this stage, how do you know if it's working? I don't know if I can rely on my son telling my that one is empty b/c he nurses a lot for comfort. At those times, it might not even bother him if there's not much milk. I just don't want to get to the point where it might be too late to try any tricks, so to speak (-; , to increase the supply & my little guy & I are devastated b/c there's no more milk at all.
Please don't tell me that I shouldn't be nursing this long. I was one of those people WAY back when (-; who thought it was disgusting for a child this old to be nursing. This is my fifth little one and like his siblings, nursing is VERY important to him (so it is for me, too (-: ). It's just something that happens (long-time nursing); I don't know how many women actually plan for it to go this long. All I know is that my son & I are a very happy nursing couple, and I want it to continue as long as my son wants it to!
