I am considering TTC and have a 2.5 year old nursling. I'm just looking for some insight and feedback about what it might be like for our nursing relationship if I do get pregnant. She is not ready to stop; I'd like her to slow down but am not ready to stop, either. This decision is being bumped up a bit and I am just trying to weigh all the factors. Thoughts?

My dd is younger; 20 months, but when I got pregnant, she started nursing <i>all</i> the time! It luckily does not hurt; I am hoping to tandem nurse. I think every nursing relationship is different, and mamas and kids have different and unpredictable responses to pregnancy. Good luck!

I don't have lot of advice, but I'm in your position.<br><br>
DD is 14mo, and we'd like to start TTC within the next 6 months. She's a high-needs tot that loves to nurse - I often don't ovulate.<br><br>
For TTC, My best advice would be to get Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and learn your cycles. The ladies on the boards at <a href="http://www.tcoyf.com" target="_blank">www.tcoyf.com</a> would probably have some advice as well. Other resources would be Ina May's Guide or <a href="http://www.kellymom.com" target="_blank">www.kellymom.com</a>.<br><br>
For impact on your DD, I'd check out Mothering Your Nursing Toddler, Adventures in Tandem Nursing, or the Toddler board here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
HTH!

Hi. My experience, I got af back when ds was 16 mos, I got pg on my 2nd cycle when he was 23 mo. Nursing was a blessing at first because I was so sick, I really couldn't get off the couch sometimes so I would nurse him there. I was pretty sore for the first few months, sometimes I just had to refuse to nurse him because it hurt too bad. But the tenderness and the morning sickness went away and I was so glad I hadn't weaned him. I read a lot about tandem nursing and nursing while pg, the book the pp reccd was great.
