Maybe she means there is no milk, but something else instead?

She is gong to wean when she goes off to uni though, right?

Unless the uni is handily local? ;)

While wading though uni policy documents tonight, I did discover that my uni has a special permit available to facilitate breastfeeding. I assume it's for a carer to bring a baby to campus to meet mum, but perhaps I could try my luck the other way around.

oh no, wait, well, she did try to latch on when we were in the bath last week, but I won't count that.

Sounds promising. I won't crack out the champagne just yet (or maybe I will, but only because it's New Year's Eve.)

I'm glad someone's enjoying this :roll:

I don't think she can suck anymore. On the left there was a slurping sound (like doing a pretend fart by blowing on your hand) and I'm not sure she even got a seal on the right.

I don't think she even wanted a feed, I think it was a sleep time delay tactic.

Mrs Moops had two feeds today :roll: So I am enjoying it in the same way we might enjoy being stuck on a desert island together! First a tantrum calmer, second a bedtime delaying tactic. She is still getting a little bit!

If she isn't attaching properly does it hurt?

Yes. It's hurt since very early on in the pregnancy. It actually didn't hurt too much tonight - perhaps because she couldn't get a seal and therefore couldn't suck?

Nothing since the last time. So who knows.

At this stage I don't think she'll come back when the milk does, but who really knows...

It will be interesting to see what happens when baby arrives and so does your milk.

Will you let her feed after the baby is born or not going the tandem feeding path?

Well, she asked for a feed the night I last updates (8 jan), I think as a bedtime delay tactic, not a milk tactic. I kinda ignored her and she didn't push it. She asked last night when we were out at dinner but I didn't want to so I distracted her with ice cream. This morning when we were all in bed saying good morning to each other she said 'good morning nipples!' and then told me how much she likes playing with big nipples :roll: (I was covered up the whole time too!)

I'm torn as to if I'll let her back or not when the milk comes back. I don't know 1) what to do or 2) how to cut her off if that's what I decide.
