Re: Can I do anything to increase my supply during pregnancy?

Supply dips during pregnancy are simply part of pregnancy. You absolutely can continue to nurse, but you should not expect to be able to meet your baby's caloric needs during pregnancy.

I have nursed through 2 pregnancies. With each one, my supply increased slightly around 16-18 weeks when my milk converted to colostrum. That said, we are talking about making only 1 ounce to 1 1/2 ounces per nursing session. If you want to continue nursing and go on to tandem, you will need to keep your young baby at the breast as much as possible, or they may wean, regardless of what you may want.
