Hey guys, I'm fast approaching my 1 year mark and we're still nursing 5-6 times a day.
Is anybody planning to wean at a year? I'm conflicted. I want to wean because I want to start dieting and get back into shape, but whenever I've tried over the past few months, my milk supply drops drastically. But on the other hand, I want Gabe to be able to get the proper nutrition from BM and I'm worried about losing the best tool I have for calming him. Any thoughts?
This sub forum is for nursing past a year, so I would assume most moms here have passed the 12 month mark. Ripley is 18 months and still nursing nights and weekends.
Personally I have noticed myself gaining weight since she had started nursing less. . Producing milk is a super calorie burner. Add in a lean healthy diet and exercise and you may lose weight. If you're already doing this and not losing weight I don't have much helpful advice.
My personal opinion is that nothing can compare to BM I'm a little ones diet. I have found it to be more rewarding on a bonding level the older she gets.
