    I doubt your supply will just "go away" unless you get pregnant. I am pregnant, an

  • Same as what the others have said. No milk doesn't always mean weaning. DD is almost 2 and nurses to sleep. When I got pregnant a few months ago my milk went away. She still nurses and if I decide to wean, I have a feeling she will be quite resistant.
