I'm getting a little ahead of myself since we're not planning on TTC again for atleast a year but I was just wondering if any other mamas are in this situation. I really like the idea of CLW but I have a low-milk supply and I'm worried that if DS didn't wean before or during my next pregnancy he'd be taking milk away from a newborn who needs it more than he does. Any thoughts?

I'm right there with you. I'm a low supply mom (we use LAs to supplement at the breast), CLW and expecting number three. Dd is 2 1/2 and still nursing (although my supply is pretty much nil). I will be tandem nurisng in a few months. I'm not certain how it is going to work, but it will somehow.
