Re: Breastfeeding my 6 month old while pregnant?????

My milk supply dramatically dropped once I was pregnant. DS was over 18 months but still nursed a lot. My supply was probably cut in half by 16 weeks or so and went to almost nothing in later months. My milk came in the day my baby was born though (which leads me to believe it was never totally gone) and I tandem nursed for 9 months. How was your supply during your last pregnancy? Sad to say, but it really is risking your supply to get pregnant. I do NOT say this from a place of judgement, only from a place of having been there. If you want to EBF your baby till a year, you may have to wait to TTC.
