i too am having a nursing aversion.
i try to read here at mdc or a book, or watch tv. anythingto distract myself.
What I've done in the past is crossword puzzles, trashy novels, anything that gets your focus on something else. I also read Mothering Your Nursing Toddler several times, especially referring to the chapters on nursing during pregnancy. I lived in that book! So far I haven't had any problems but it's early yet for me. I'm definitely bracing myself for it.
Nursing aversion is terrible. (((hugs))) to you, Mamas!
Usually when I get pregnant, I wean the previous child, but my son will not wean. He is 23 months and down to one nursing a day.
I am 9 weeks pg, and I'm sore. and tired. i have four children, this pg makes 5!

|I don't feel like I always know the perfect way to parent my little girl... I'm glad nursing has been such an easy way to show her I love her, although it hasn't been easy through pregnancy. It is nice to know others are going through the same thing.|
Hi everyone! I was wondering if any of you conceived your baby that you're pregnant with the first month after your period returned. I've heard conflicting things. I've read that it takes a few months for your cycles to be normal and you might not even ovulate.I've also heard that it can be hard to get pregnant while you are breastfeeding even if your period has come back. But I've also heard to act like you are fertile as soon as the period comes back. Which was it for some of you? Thanks in advance!

Oh, I am so glad I found this thread. I am 7 weeks pregnant and nursing my 13 month old daughter.
I've been experiencing a lot of pain during dd's latch, but I read on kellymom.com that some women find that increasing water intake helps. I'm giving that a try, not yet sure if it's helping my nipples but the extra hydration sure makes me feel better overall.
Luckily I'm not having too much ms. Mostly I've been really really tired, taking up to a 3-hour afternoon nap when dd does every day. Also the hunger! I can't eat enough to stay sated, find myself lightheaded/low blood sugary often, and no matter that I'm eating like it's going out of style I am losing weight.
We're in this for the long haul though. I am totally committed to nursing dd for at least 2 years. Since she'll only be 21 months when the new baby comes, we're heading onward to a tandem nursing adventure. I just hope my nipples don't hurt so badly through the whole pregnancy.
One question: dd doesn't drink any milk but mine. Should I introduce her to some other animal's milk now so she'll be used to it when/if my supply dries up? What kind of milk is best for a (as far as we know) lactose tolerant toddler?
