Prego and nursing ?'s#109-27-2008, 09:21 PMHi all, I'm 6-7 wks. along with my 2nd. My dd is almost 1 and still nursing 3/5 times a day. Is it safe to keep nursing? Will she self wean as I get further along? Anyone with this experience? What can I expect in the coming wks? Thanks for any help!~d.Tags: None

#209-28-2008, 06:47 AMit is absolutely safe to nurse while pregnant, unless your midwife/ob advises that it is somehow posing a threat. and even then, i'd get a second opinion. she may or may not self-wean. your milk will eventually dry up into your preg. and this is very disturbing for some children and they wean, others take it in stride. i never nursed while preg. but know many moms who have, most of whom had children nurse all the way thru the preg. then went on to tandem. this, however, is a personal choice for your family. you will have to determine your own family's unique needs and how you wish to try to meet them.

This site is an evidence based site about breastfeeding. It is more indepth than most sites and I can't reccomend it enough.

My DS was 7 months old when we conceived, and there was NO way we were going to stop nursing! In fact I was really stressed out before the birth, because DS still nurses to sleep every nite. I wondered how on earth I was going to manage!!! But I knew we would.
As DS grew older and my pregnancy progressed, I definitely noticed a change in my milk! There hardly seemed to be any! But he isn't ready to wean (I'm so glad!). My favourite part of the day is when I get to nurse them both at the same time, and they just latch on and stare at each other. It's one of those beautiful moments that I will always remember as a mommy!
So now DS #1 is 17 months and DS #2 is 3 weeks. I'm not sure if this helped you at all, but I wanted to share my experience. It's so worth it! Enjoy and good luck. :-)

My DS is almost 18 months old and I am 28 weeks pregnant and we are still nursing. He has cut back to only a few times a day mostly before nap/bed and in the morning.
There have been times where it was uncomfortable but they pass. My supply has dropped considerably but there is still enough to satisfy him.
I have found great advice on kellymom.com and in the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing.
Good Luck & Congrats!
