I don't know the answer to your question, but as someone who has gone through having a second child (after having bf issues with #1), I want to gently ask how committed you are to adding this to a plate that will be awfully full once your 2nd is born?
You will be dealing with getting used to a newborn again, trying to make nursing work this time and all of the anxiety that entails, adjusting to the loss of your one-on-one relationship with dd, helping dd adjust to having a sibling, the whole rearrangement of family life, etc. If dd wants to do it and you have the energy, go for it, but I wouldn't get overly attached to trying to make it work. It just sounds really stressful.
I hope you don't think I'm trying to rain on your parade! Just giving my perspective. And alll the best to you with nursing this time! Things worked out great for me the second time around, and I wish you the same happiness.
