Great book, I read that when I was pregnant w/ #2 and still nursing #1. I didn't have to buy it either, I just borrowed it from our LLL group library.

Re: Anyone pregnant & still nursing another baby?

I got pregnant when DS #1 was 14 months and nursed him until 21 months (7 months prego) when my supply dried up. So he ended up weaning himself. But we had not been nursing at night for awhile, so supply was lower anyway. No problems, but it was more uncomfortable as my pregnancy progressed.

Just make sure you eat enough. Not a problem for me I second the recommendation for the Adventures in Tandem Nursing book. I borrowed it from LLL, too. It covers the whole spectrum of experiences you could have nursing while pregnant and with two babies. Very reassuring.

Re: Anyone pregnant & still nursing another baby?

Thank you, I will keep nursing. Is Fenugreek ok to take while pregnant? I've taken it before but it didn't increase my suppy. If I put my baby on the breast more frequently will I stand a better chance of it not drying up? It will be a very sad day for me if he weans himself.
