Read up then. Become informed from a medical/bio stance.

At 40 ...the body is prepping to 're group as it enters the slow down phase. Digestive/nourishment changes abound. Not to mention the hormones .

Sounds like the op is trying to understand what to expect at this age and if anyone has tips since getting nourishment for herself and the child isn't the same in this scenario given her body has matured more.

40 years old is nothing. I know more 40 plus year olds with small children. It's very common. I was 38 with my last kid. Almost 40. I had no problems at all to breast feed. It is very individual.
I talk from experiences. A lot of it. If the OP wants to listen to people with experience she is very welcome. Then we can consider other stats..I guess..

The OP, who hasn't been back or clarified her statement that "things are bit different," has a 14-month-old, not a newborn. It's a little late to be asking what to expect. If there were problems with the baby failing to thrive or the mother lacking vital nutrients, they should have been addressed long before this.

If breastfeeding has truly become a problem then 14 months old is a perfectly good time to stop.

Anyway, I don't buy the doomsday "body is slowing down...changes abound" scenario. I know too many women who have had absolutely no problem getting pregnant, having healthy babies, and breastfeeding in their 40s. My mom had two at that age, my sister when she was 40 and me when she was 43. 40 is not that old. In fact, I'm 48 and I haven't noticed any "digestive changes," whatever that means.

Sorry for not replying sooner. I guess maybe it's just me, and I feel more judged being older. I could definitely use a breast lift though after nursing 4 kids.
