    Default Pregnant and breastfeeding

    Hi ladies,

    I am breastfeeding my 13 month old son and have just found out that I am expecting bubba number two. Just wondering if any Mums who have breastfeed through pregnancy have any tips for me? I know that it might start to hurt, and that my supply may drop, and DS may self wean.

    What I'm really curious about is - will my boobs get even bigger? Not sure I'm ready for that!

    Default Pregnant and breastfeeding

    I'm 17 weeks pregnant and still bf'ing 2 yr old DS. So far he hasn't even slightly gone off it and my boobs haven't gotten bigger. It did hurt for a couple of weeks early on, but not now. I'm not planning on stopping unless DS wants to.

    Congratulations! I found out I was pregnant the day after DS1 turned 1. I was 6 weeks exactly. I tried to keep bfing but the morning sickness won and I couldn't keep going. I had very severe morning sickness...to the point I couldn't get through a feed without throwing up :-(

    Otherwise DS1 would have been happy to keep going so I'm sure you'll be fine. I hate to tell you, though, my boobs did keep getting bigger though!!

    i just finished feeding my 32month old, after feeding my 11 month old (21 month gap). DD fed all through pregnancy except for 1 day. At the start she was still having around 10 feeds a day. She night weaned at 15 months (approx 3 months pg), which was lovely for me, and cut down to 2-3 feeds by the end of the pregnancy.

    i actually breastfed her and then read her a story at the begining of my labour of #2. She got quite keen again when my milk came in after baby, but i made the decision to keep to the 2-3 feeds (after a few days of indulgence).

    I am really glad that i was able to continue feeding through pregnancy, and after. i think it helped my #1 through the adjustment of #2's arrival.
