Stopping and restarting breastfeeding
As someone who had to wean twice to do IVF and who would have loved to continue breastfeeding but didn't, the one thing I told myself to make it easier was that I was doing it to give my kids the best opportunity to have a sibling, something I considered a greater gift than extended breastfeeding.
I never wanted to wean DS1 early as he was supposed to be my last. Sadly at 12 months he didn't want to know me and self weaned.
Can I ask @ScubaGal why it would only be for 1 month? Or is that just best case scenario? I only ask because I kept feeding DD1 until she was 15 months and then it took me 2.5 years to have another pregnancy. I was also 34.

Like I said originally my plan was to try again fairly soon - I think before I had DS I might have even thought of trying again at six or nine months (madness!) then it was twelve and now eighteen... Any longer than that and it starts to push the envelope if it isn't easy and we need to do a full stim...
Ultimately it's not something I really need to worry about right now so I'm not sure why I am, but was mostly just curious because some women who fall pregnant naturally are able to tandem feed and I wondered if there was any way an IVFer could manage it.

But once she got to 15 months I felt I'd never get back to IVF. I wanted my body back for a month or 2 as well before we went back.
In the end though weaning was hard we both survived! She flourished and j loved being more than just a pair of breasts to her.
All I'm saying is even if you do have to wean, and it is hard, it will be ok.

It might all be a moot point anyway because I will have to go back to work sometime in the first half of next year. I wish I could be a SAHM.
This thread is basically a call for the Waaambulance.
