After 7 months. I dried up. I can only feed maybe once a day. Kinda sad about it but you know what, 6 months is better than none right?

I agree with Sara. It's virtually impossible to simply "dry up" out of the blue. Your body will make as much milk as your baby demands. Just put your baby to the breast more often. Your body will respond and make more.

try massaging your breasts before you feed in order to get them to leak that way the milk should be right there for him.

Well ya see, he got a cold and it was hard for him to nurse since he had a stuffed nose. so he was nursing less and so i wasnt producing as much as normal since he wasnt nursing enough. and ever since that he can suck forever almost and nothing comes out. and besides that, hes very impatient when it comes to that so he wont just sit there and suck until he gets something, he starts crying cuz hes not getting it.

What makes you think you dried up? If you have low supply issue then you can try nursing more often. The more you nurse the more you will make.
