I am nursing my 2 y/o DD still. I have certainly noticed a drop in my supply and a huge increase in her intake of food and drink.

Part of me hopes weaning happens naturally with this pregnancy but I am also open to tandem nursing (as long as getting through a pregnancy while nursing isn't off the charts irritating or painful which I have heard it can be.)

I do believe if she doesn't nightwean herself during the first half of this pregnancy I will encourage that process. I just don't want to be very pregnant and nursing at night.

Anyone else still nursing?

ME!!

C is 30 months and still nursing. She is going in spurts every couple days she shows no interest, but for the most part she still nurses 2x daily, bedtime and waking up in the morning.

I'm hurting. My nipples hurt soooooo bad I usually have to break the latch. I'd actually like her to wean early in the pregnancy so that I can have some down time from baby at the breast. If she doesn't, oh well.
I have noticed my boobs getting smaller the last week or two, so I'm assuming my supply is dwindling. I haven't pumped in months, so I'm judging by 'deflation'


24 hours before I took a HPT, I posted on my facebook that it's weird that I won't have a baby nursing or expecting another one shortly as that's been my life the last 4.5 years.... can we say, SURPRISE!

Me! I am still nursing my younger son (17 months) and pumping enough for a sippy cup of milk a day for my older son, who is allergic to milk. I am hoping that my supply doesn't completely tank, because my older son really needs the milk! I'm not as worried about my younger, because he can have alternatives.

So far I have noticed a slight drop as the day goes on, but my first few nursing sessions of the day are the same as they ever were.

I'm still nursing too!

DD is only 10 months, so I'm pumping and eating oatmeal in an attempt to build up my freezer stash. Breastfeeding has always been a little painful for me, so when/if it gets worse I'll switch to pumping and get her to at least a year. From there, I'd be ok with weaning her. Not my ideal situation, but who knows, breastfeeding might not get more painful at all.

Contingency plan is in place, now I'm just taking this day by day and seeing how it feels.

Hi! I'm still nursing too. My guy will be 2 next week. Honestly, I just don't want to nurse anymore. I feel so done with it. If it were up to my guy he would nurse around the clock, and before I found out I was pregnant he had a cold and DID nurse literally twice an hour whenever we were home. Since he has gotten better and I found out I am pregnant I have been saying no to nursing a lot. But I still nurse at least at naptime/bedtime and many, many, many times at night.

I plan on weaning when my supply drops, and I hope to nightwean before that. He had been nightweaned before, but then he had a two week hospital stay in February(I was sleeping in the hospital bed with him), and ever since then I haven't put any effort into nightweaning. I'm just so damn tired when he wakes to nurse at night it is easier to nurse then to rock him or sing to him.

I'm already feeling a lot of nipple pain/sensitivity.

We are still nursing here..I have a 15 mth old. We have cut back our amount, but he loves to nurse so I don't see us weeing anytime soon. I know my supply has dropped some, but he doesn't seem to care one bit. I really don't want to tandem nurse, so I am hoping he will gradually stop on his own before this new baby comes. I don't want to force him to stop though..so time will tell how this all works out!!

Me too. Haven't noticed a difference in supply (Due March 12) but am already feeling guilty as to how this will impact dd, who is only 14 mos. I think we may be night weaning a little sooner, and I'm considering setting her up in her own room, too. Not all at once, of course!

I'm still nursing my 27-month-old and I don't think my supply as really dropped much. I really want to let him wean when he is ready and am happy to tandem nurse.

Although my boobs are sore now, it doesn't hurt much when he nurses. Let down on the breast he isn't currently using does hurt unless I squeeze a little out.

mom2threenurslings: Did your milk go away in the middle of pregnancy? How did you negotiate that nursing through the pregnancies? Did your children keep nursing or did they take a break and then start nursing again once your milk returned?

I've never lost my milk during pregnancy, so it hasn't been an issue. I know several moms whose supply dropped dramatically during pregnancy and have had nurslings that either "dry nursed" though pregnancy or "weaned" during pregnancy and came back to the breast after baby was born.

I am still nursing my 16 months old son. He is down to morning and night only (and has been for a few months) but this past week he has actually been turning even those down. I have a feeling he will be weaning soon.

DD nursed till she was 23 months and i was 5 months prego with DS. Around the 12-14 week mark it got really annoying and I had this creepy need to not be nursing any more. I held on till I had my 20 week US to be sure the baby was all healthy, then it was done.

Good to know that it is possible for milk to stay throughout pregnancy. Everyone I know has been telling me it usually goes away.

Still nursing here too. he is almost 21 months.. milk seems down but his nursing is still up. I'm with you on the whole if the night weaning doesn't happen by 20 ish weeks I think i might encourage it along. I don't want to wean him casue he loves it soo much and it's really our time.

DS1 weaned when i was 6 weeks pregnant with ds2 but was down to barely nursing so it was an easy transition but it made me sad. Kinda hoping for some tandem nursing

I'm nursing my 11 month old still. He slept through the night for the first time EVER. (8:30pm to 9am) It was so lovely to sleep but it made my supply REALLY decrease... in only 1 night! I am now nursing him every 3 hours during the day to try to boost my supply but he is getting very impatient and it doesn't seem to be working.
So we WILL make it to a year and then if he goes through a nursing strike or wean then I guess I won't push it too much. It makes me sad thought because I really wanted to nurse him until he was 2 at least.

I'm still nursing my 20 month old on demand (and lately that's been many many times a day!) I'm feeling pretty sore, but thought it was more to do with her excruciating molars coming in than anything else, but now that I know I'm pregnant I'm wondering if that's part of it too. My milk hasn't changed yet, that I can tell. I think I could probably handle nursing through a pregnancy, but my DD is a major twiddler of the other nipple and I'm almost at my limit all the time anyway. Sometimes I think the twiddling is actually more important to her than the nursing! I'm happy to hear that not everyone's milk dries up completely - everyone I know IRL has had this happen.

I have a twiddler too. It is awful. But he cannot fall asleep without twiddling. Honestly if he didn't twiddle I probably would not feel the need to wean so intensely.

Still nursing my 21 month old. Already night weaned too, like the day after I found out! Did the whole nurse throguh the last pregnancy and tandemed for about 7 months and it was a major bummer honestly. It was so super hard on me. Emotionally and seriously physically. Not so much pain, wish it had been pain, just severe discomfort. And I made it through the pregnancy hinking it would all get better when baby came, but it didn't go away. I struggled a lot with nursing because of it and I am a huge lactivist. It almost made me hate it. As soon as i weaned my first it got better.

I feel fine about weaning my baby now too. I had hoped to wean him by 2 years old anyway and i think he'll be fine with it. We are already down to about 3-4 times a day. My milk is drying up already too and he seems to notice and when he's thirsty he asks for water. I'd like to keep comforting him to sleep until he turns two but he seems over it so if that happens, I'll let it go.

Besides I'd really like a bit of a booby break this time!

Ugh DD was on the boob all night last night and it was so uncomfortable for me. I am already feeling like I need a pillow in between my legs and under my tummy (even though I'm not showing or anything) to be comfortable and DD was just crawling all over me, wanted the other side.

Nightweaning might need to happen sooner rather then later. Her birthday is on Friday, so potentially in the next couple weeks.

I'm still nursing my three year old, but I'm hoping we're close to done. My milk supply has almost completely dried up since I got pregnant. We were down to nursing once a day before I got pg, but he's been wanting to nurse twice since, although for shorter lengths each time.

So in the last 2 days, with my nipple sensitivity going into overdrive and a serious twiddler, I'm feeling like I need to start the process to cut down on nursing a bit. It's so painful, especially at the latch-on, and she's constantly wanting to switch sides and popping on and off. I've started trying to redirect, offer alternatives and sometimes just say, no mimi's are hurting right now, but I'd love any other ideas. I'm starting to think that I'd like to wean during the pregnancy so I can have a break before nursing a newborn. DD could go back to it then if she wanted, I guess.

I am the same way. Just in the last few days my nipples became SO sensistive that I can barely stand for him to latch on. He is also cutting some new teeth, which always makes his latch painful.

I am going to try to tough it through the teething period and hope it gets better, but if it is still painful after that, I may have to wean.

Switching sides a lot means your supply is probably lower than normal, so your nursling is trying to increase your supply. I often find it necessary to teach "nursing manners" to older nurslings who can understand them ... for example, we nurse on one side and leave the other side alone - if you play with the other side, you need to be done. If you need to be able to control the length of time your child is nursing (or nursing on one side if they're switching sides and it's driving you batty), you can explain to them that you're going to sing the _____ song (ABCs, twinkle twinkle, whatever) and when you stop singing, it's time to be done nursing (or switch sides). For a child who is switching sides and you want them to stay on one side longer, say they need to nurse on that side until the song is over. That way you can control how long they're on by how quickly, slowly or how many times you sing the song and it can be a different length of time as needed. You can also count down to blast-off.... count down from 10 to one and then say "blast off" as you break their latch and tickle them, or pick them up and throw them in the air, or whatever. Some moms find it works well if, after they "make" their child nurse for a shorter period of time than the child might want to nurse, mom then makes an effort to ask the nursling to nurse when she's relaxed and ready....many moms who do this are surprised to find their nurslings say no or start asking less frequently.

I'm still nursing, my son is 29 months. Thankfully we night-weaned this past spring, but he still nurses when he wakes in the morning, before and after nap, before bed, and whenever he's sad/tired/hurt/frightened/overstimulated/bored... Honestly, I'm not too eager to tandem nurse, but he's not showing any signs of being anywhere near ready to wean.

My son's a twiddler, too...and this has me really nervous. I keep hearing how uncomfortable, even painful, it can be to breastfeed while pregnant, so I'm trying to discourage the twiddling...but it's not going well. So far (knock wood) I'm not having any breast tenderness, but I know that it's coming.

I'm nursing my 22 month old DD, and just got a BFP yesterday. I don't feel ready for her to wean, but I'm terrified of tandem nursing. I just can't imagine being able to do it.

DD is partially nightweaned, and I hope to extend that non-nursing, sleeping time. It has been a huge struggle to nightwean her, though--she is very persistent. We've been working on it since the end of February.

I'm stressing. Everyone is telling me I *have* to wean my daughter because I'm pregnant. She's only 10 months! It feels a lot like I'm punishing her cuz I messed up. It's not her fault.

I'd like to talk to a professional about this - but it's damn near impossible to find an OB who knows anything about gastric bypass.

I highly recommend Adventures in Tandem Nursing even if you plan to wean. It has great info! Your local LLL chapter might even have a copy you can borrow.
