Grace (3.5) has said for the last few nights that there is “no milk left”. I’m slightly worried about this on a two different points really. Obviously the first is that if there really is no milk then that’s a problem for Jude, who is still mostly breastfed. I’m certain there is milk during the day - leaking and squirting still often occurs (!) but I’m wondering if there really isn’t any in the evening? Second, if this is Grace’s problem, rather than an actual lack of milk, how do I ease a child who is very attached to nursing (morning and night only now) through the process of loosing her latch, which is what I suspect is happening. It’s strange - she has started to fall asleep after nursing now instead of nursing *to* sleep, and this evening she nearly forgot to ask for milk, but when she can’t get any she gets very distressed :(
Any advice gratefully received.
