Has anyone continued to breastfeed and through a pregnancy?  Any tips on maintaining/increasing milk supply?  I just found out I am 4wk 4days pregnant, and dd is almost 10months old.  I plan to continue to bf through this pregnancy, and would like some tips if you've got any to share.

 

Thanks!

I've nursed through a pregnancy. A lot of women choose to do so. However, there's nothing that can be done about the milk supply. It's completely hormonal. Some women lose milk immediately, some later in pregnancy a few don't at all. I'd keep your eye on your LO's diapers to be sure baby is still getting enough milk. If wet diapers seem too low, you may need to supplement with formula since baby is under 1 year. I highly recommend the book "Adventures in Tandem Nursing" by Hillary Flower. It's got lots of great info. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
