Hi, I'm in the process of adopting a 2yr. old from Ontario, and I plan to breastfeed her. The only problem is that I also have a 10 mo. old that is still breast feeding. can I breastfeed both of my children at once, or will I have to keep one of them from nursing? please help!

XOX:joy

yes you can breastfeed both of them at the same time best thing to do right now while you are waiting on her to get here is to start pumping the other side that you 10 month old is not nurse to help increase your milk supply and i would also take fenugreek to help increase your milk cause you will go from supplying milk for one to two so you will need more

Thanks a lot, but can you tell me what fenugreek is?

it is a herb that help with milk supply if you have a low amount and i think it might help bring your amount up some since your going to be feeding two you want it to come up some
