I am nursing my baby who is 6 months old. I work full time and have been able to provide enough milk that she has only gotten breast milk. She still nurses quite a bit, but does enjoy eating 3 meals a day of pureed foods. She has (mostly) slept through the night for a few months now. I had my first PP period in December.
I found out that I am pregnant this week! I was very surprised, but we are excited. I am concerned about my milk supply though. She only gets one bottle at day care. She takes 6 oz and sometimes that is difficult for me to provide for. I am just barely scraping by right now. She gets no other bottles ever, so that I can save up whatever I can pump.
I am actually an IBCLC, but have been out of my practice now for several years, and didn't have much experience with pregnant moms nursing and supply issues.
It has been hard finding information on nursing a younger baby while pregnant. Much of the information is relating to safety of nursing and toddler breastfeeding issues. I have seen some information that around 16 weeks is when supply seems to go down quite a bit. So that would mean she would be about 9-10 months old when that happens.
Just wondering if you guys had any experience with nursing younger babies while nursing and what kind of supply issues you had. Obviously working full time makes this difficult, but that won't change (unfortunately!).
