My son is 19 months and I'm still breastfeeding. I plan on nursing til he's two. Lately I feel like my milk may be slowly decreasing. Has this happened to anyone after they went 100% raw? Before that, I ate mostly raw so I didn't think it was a big change. I feel great, I don't feel as if I'm under eating.. has this happened to anyone?

Hello fellow mommy
Just be sure that you eat loads of healthy fats.... nuts, avocados, oils, coconut oil is a big one! Coconuts, in any form... water, butter, oil, the whole fruit. Fruits and veggies usually look similar to what they are good for. Coconuts are round, and filled with creamy white nectar and meat inside, just as a mothers breast. Lots of people beleive that this is natures little hint that it helps assist in producing breast milk!
I breastfeed my son until he was 2 and a half with no problem. There is a point, I would say around 18-20 mo's, where it seems like the breastmilk decreases, but it really doesn't. You might be smaller in size, but the milk comes in WHILE he's feeding, rather than storing up in your breast throughout the day. I've heard this many times over from other long term breastfeeders. The feeling might not be as strong at this point, maybe because you've gotten used to it, or many for you it is still strong.
Just be sure to stay hydrated, eat any coconut :), and just TRUST that your body is doing the right thing. Our body is a miracle and it will do what it has to. The biggest part is trusting and believing. Any stress that we might have will make it worse, so don't even worry! You're doing awesome, and you'll make it to your goal! Because its natural for your beautiful body!!!
