Re: If you breastfed when you got pregnant again..

My daughter was 16 months old when I got pregnant again and nursing a LOT. I could tell that my supply dropped in the beginning, but she didn't mind. Around 10-11 weeks it started really hurting to nurse, and I started weaning seriously, even though I wanted to nurse her until she was 2. So in my case it was less of a supply issue, and more of a case of it killing me to nurse her. Also, I just don't think it's that healthy for a mom to be nursing and making a baby; it's just difficult to support all of those things at the same time. So I weaned, albeit slowly.
