    Default Breastfeeding and got a BFP, concerns with a baby still feeding overnight?

    We wanted another baby but my cycles were off, no clue about ovulation but I got a BFP last Monday. Yay! Any concerns still breastfeeding frequently over night?

    Stick little baby, please stick!

    Feed away mumma! A lot of women continue to feed through pregnancy and then tandem feed after birth with no issues. Congratulations Xx

    Congrats! How old is your baby? Mine was 13 months and still feeding overnight. Once my milk started disappearing she woke less and eventually she started sleeping through. She fed throughout the pregnancy even when there was no milk and is still feeding now alongside her 3.5 month old sister

    I fed my DS1 through my entire 2nd pregnancy (and beyond). He was 7 months old when I fell pregnant so was still feeding a lot.

    Congratulations! That's wonderful news 😄!!!

    Is it ok if I ask a related question?...don't mean to hijack!

    We'd like a smaller gap in ages next time (was 2.5 years this time) but I don't want to jeopardise breastfeeding for my bubs. Can any of you ladies who have been there comment on when your supply dried up, especially if your baby was under 12 months when you conceived?

    Keep going if you want to! Dd was 5 months when we fell with number 2. I managed to exclusively breastfeed her until she was 7 months but then had a supply drop (about 9 weeks pregnant) so had no choice but to supplement with formula. Then a huge drop at 17-20 weeks was only managing one breastfeed per day. But now at nearly 23 weeks we are back on track, I pumped and encouraged feeding as much as possible and managed to keep it. It was just hard because she still had/has 5-6 per day, if I had been feeding 1-2 times and she was over 12 months I probably wouldn't have noticed or worried as much.
    Congrats

    My son is 9 months old, I'd only be about 3 weeks, maybe 4? Not sure really. Won't have a dating scan for 5 or 6 weeks just to be on the safe side of seeing the heart beat if there is one! Thank you ladies.

    I noticed no drop in my supply. Had plenty of milk and when DS2 was born he was back at birth weight (and then past it) very quickly. I then fed both boys for around 7-8 months before my eldest weaned himself, and I am still feeding DS2 (17 months old).
