Anyone with younger ones still BFing?

My son just turned 1 year old and we've been BFing since birth. However, since getting pregnant my supply has dropped (I thought it was just because I was about to get my period, boy was I wrong ha ha). What can I do to increase it other than nurse on demand? I let him nurse whenever, he still wakes up a few times at night to nurse. But I wanna let him self wean and don't want it to be because I have a real low supply. Any tips or ideas are welcome!

Also, we're military and are seen at a military hospital...they're absolutely no help when it comes to BFing (the one dr told me once I hit 6 weeks PP my supply would be established and nothing could increase or decrease it, and that's just one example...smh).

I am but he's becoming less and less interested and I am ok with being done whenever he is done. I don't have advice for upping supply sorry :(.
