My son is 17 months old, and typically nurses for about 2 hours (sleep-eating) in the morning, before his afternoon nap, and before bed. He's becoming more and more food dependent and doesn't seem to miss *milk* so much as sucking and being nuzzled. I only get engorged if he's skipped a morning or evening session.
We're starting to toy with the idea of #2, but I'd really love to do a cleanse before hand. I feel like my organs aren't functioning as well as they could be - I tend to retain water easily, and have gastric problems. I'd really love to do a cleanse (or a few) before starting on #2.
Everything I've read says you can't do a cleanse while breast feeding - but most of the things I've read also seem to assume that a baby will stop BFing somewhere between 6-12months. I just wanted to check and confirm if that's the same case with an older BFing child. I don't want to stop BFing him before he's ready, but at the same time I don't want to get pregnant again without preparing as much as I can. And our ages are a bit of an issue so we're feeling a slight press for time.
I recently did a cleanse while nursing DD at 15 months, a naturopathic doctor led a few people and assured me it was fine as long as I had enough calories. it was a very basic cleanse, just cutting out gluten, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods so plenty of things to eat.
Thanks! That's what I was wondering - except now I just found out today I'm pregnant already. Actually that kind of diet sounds fine even though I'm pregnant. Already been trying hard to cut out sugar ^.^
