I'm wondering how my pregnancy is going to affect our nursing relationship. I know that at some point, my milk will turn to colostrum for the new baby. When does that happen? When it does, will DD think this is a new and wonderful thing, or wean?
Thanks for all advice!
I have always just tried to keep an open mind about it. If she wants to keep nursing, that's her choice. If she wants to wean, that's her choice. If she wants to wean and start again once the baby comes, that her choice. One day at a time.

I'm interested to see how she reacts when my milk comes in for the new baby--I'm afraid she won't like it and will be overwhelmed after having barely anything for so long!
Nursing through pregnancy has been hard for me. It has hurt A LOT sometimes. Her latch has gotten messed up due to low supply and caused a blister. Sometimes while I get this crawly feeling like I just want to throw DD out the window and run away. But nursing is so important to her, she wouldn't give it up without a lot of heartbreak unless she was totally ready to let go.
