SO my baby girl just turned 19 months and we have been BF this whole time. However, I am not producing anymore. I noticed she would suck harder and get frustrated and go from breast to breast. I have tried pumping and milking and nothing. The problem is...she still is trying to nurse. She goes completely bonkers if I don't nurse her. Our routine was morning and night she was nursed. The rest of the day she was to busy to want it. So how do I go about getting her to stop wanting to nurse? I mean there is nothing there?!?! If there was I totally wouldn't try to stop her. I am kind of sad I just "dried up" but knew it would happen. Any advice what I should do?
Weird that it just dried up after nursing for so long. All I can think for you to do is to try to distract her and offer something else instead of nursing. Extra cuddles, reading or a drink in a sippy.

I agree, try and distract her. I would suggest trying to drop one nursing session at a time - whichever one she is less attached to. Could your dh or someone help out? For me, dropping the night nursing was super easy (which surprised me!!) DH just started reading to her instead of me nursing her. We told her that I was already asleep with the baby (nursing dd and ds down to sleep every night was wearing thin!!)
If you decide to drop the morning nursing, maybe make breakfast with her or something? Or have juice and a snack ready and waiting for when she got up? (Even stick it in the fridge the night before if you get up together)
How long as it seems dried up for? Could it be AF? Pregnancy?
Have you tried fenugreek or anything?
Update-- yea apparently it is pregnancy related lol. And apparently it decided it didn't want to dry up. I just found out I am pregnant due in April. And of course she is happy now. However, I notice it is coming and going in spurts. One time it is ample but the next time it is kind of dry. So it is interesting to see how this plays out.
