Ohhh... I'm glad to see this thread! I just found out I'm pregnant (I'm only 5 weeks) and I'm nursing my 21 month old daughter. My nipples are already very sensitive and I noticed that she started nursing more and becoming clingy even before I found out I was pregnant. did anyone else experience this? Also, I feel like my milk supply is already decreasing... I thought this didn't happen until 4-5 months?! I'm confused. I need to buy that adventures in tandem nursing book!

My mw said the big milk change comes around 28 weeks. And then it shifts to colostrum. For me this is a problem because I was told I am going to have to probably supplement for her nutrition. Anyone ever nurse <1 yo when pg?

I've lost most of my milk already, at 12 weeks. But then ds is 19 months old and wasn't nursing that much anymore. Is it possible that I am already getting some colostrum in? Now once in a while while nursing ds tells me "nurnee ucky" and acts like he is trying to spit. Of course that doesn't stop him from going right back to it!!!

Eli was 10 months old when we got pregnant. We have been giving him Silk soymilk, and much more solid food. He wasn't thrilled with the changes; it took a bit of work to find a bottle that he'd accept (apparently the playtex premium nurser feels most like mamma to him). He enjoyed eating before the milk vanished, but was still getting 70-80% of his nutrition from nursing, so it was a big change. He's still nursing, and now that there's colostrum he's asking a lot more often. Given the choice, I think he'd spend a third of the day nursing, a third reading, and a third getting into drawers. :LOL

Thanks for the info - I was thinking about giving DD rice milk - because I prefer it over soy milk. She likes to eat solids but she loves to nurse. I think we will be able to ride through this however painful it gets I just want to make sure she gets enough nutritionally.

Right now I have to supplement at night because by the end of the day I just don't have enough milk.
