Every once in a while I get paranoid that my son is starting to wean completely. I really want to make it to his second birthday and i know he still enjoys nursing, too. however, i am at my mom's house for mother's day. Whenever I come to visit, she shoves food down his throat. If he isn't interested, she won't give in until he opens his mouth for her. i've noticed this past week that he isn't nursing as much as he usually nurses when we are at home. during his normal naptime feed, i can tell he isn't trying to extract milk (nap is his only daytime feed). during the night, he typically wakes about 5 times to nurse. he isn't waking that often...maybe he wakes up twice but it doesn't feel like the same kind of sucking that i am used to. at home, he's ravenous at night, but not here. my breasts feel sooooo different here!! i do feel as if i've lost my milk completely. I'm still producing, but left boob is empty when i try to squeeze something. i'm not sure what's going on here and could use some insight!!
