    Default Breast feeding while pregnant

    Just curious. If you are supposed to avoid nipple stimulation in later pregnancy due to possible labour induction, how does it work with feeding an older child??

    I highly doubt DS 1yo will wean by the time this bub is born in 7 months so just out of curiosity

    I fed my DD through pregnancy and went on to tandem feed.

    Most women don't need to avoid nipple stimulation in pregnancy. If you are able to have sex etc, then breastfeeding will be fine.

    Cool ta. It's just everyone always says no expressing/nipple stimulation until 37+ weeks.

    I never avoided it, I don't have any risk factors. Fed through 2 pregnancies and into tandem feeding each time.

    I think it's a case by case situation. If you have a history of pre term delivery etc then sometimes it's advised not to but otherwise it's perfectly fine. I am 3 months pregnant and currently feeding my 10 month old who i doubt will wean so I guess I will be tandem feeding to!
