ther eis a whole group of us -- nurseing moms TTC --
here is our threadhttp://www.mothering.com/discussions...46#post7251046
the storys all differ.
It is important to remember that while there are moms who have NO effectt ot he milk -- MOST moms do loose some supply, and the milk taest is effected.
Now a lot of moms work through it and go on to tandam nurse.
We started TTC when DS was 10 month -- and we are still trying at 15 month -- 6 cycles now. For some reason if youa re TRYING then nurseing seesm to be quite and effect control, while i know IRL at least 3 moms with babes 15 monthor less apart for whom nurseing did nothing -- murphy at work
So I think it is importnat to do what you feel is right.
Personally I waited to be sure -- IF I lost all milk aropund 4 month PG he'd be over 12 months and eating more...........but again I know 3 moms IRL who got preggo a lot earlier than that, 2 nursed all pregancy.
I think nurtionally -- no matter how long they nurse (2 years, 3 years) they are always getting something good for them, adn the immuinty benifit is just as big later -- nurseing tots are a lot more healthy than non-nursers...
but the more they eat the less your milk is mandatory -- KWIM? AND that depends on the child. we started "food" at 8 months, but only NOW at 14 months is he starting to care and even eat every day.....
Join us -- you don't have to be TTC to come on over -- we have a lot of moms who are just hanging out learning what they can
