I am 15 weeks pregnant and still nursing my 18 month son. He nurses about once a day and its mostly a comfort thing. DS just came down with a fever two days ago and on the second day threw up twice. His fever is gone as of this morning and he seems to be feeling well. I figure it's just a bug and his body is doing what it needs to clear everything out. However, I was told by my mother-in-law that doctors say "if a child nurses while mom is pregnant then the milk can make him sick." In other words...my milk is making him sick.
Is this true?? I've never heard of anything like this. I always thought nursing while pregnant was safe as long as I make sure I get enough nutrients for all parties. I know the taste can change so the child will sometimes stop nursing but the idea of the milk actually making the child sick...fever, vomiting, etc.
Please enlighten me someone (or help me enlighten my mother-in-law)
