Re: Anyone else pregnant and BFing?

SNS= Supplementary nursing system
Here's a link-- http://www.medela.com/NewFiles/specialtyfdg.html

It's a lot of work because it means a lot of pumping (to make up for decreased nursing time from DC, and if you want to supplement with BM and not formula)...and now that I can't pump even close to enough DS is getting more formula than I'd like from it. But since he flat out refused to nurse when my supply dropped, this was pretty much my only option if I wanted to keep him nursing.

DS was only 3 months old and nursing exclusively when I got pregnant though-- I'll doubt you'll need to go this route

Oh, I see. That is young. You would need to do this for a 3mo. Wow. How are you handling having two so young? I'm wondering how I'm going to do it and my DS is 10 mo now. Yikes!

I feel you on that one, but I just keep thinking that the initial discomfort that comes with nursing just is coming earlier, lol!

Re: Anyone else pregnant and BFing?

I was pregnant and breastfeeding, and now I'm tandem breastfeeding my 3 1/2 year old and my 3 month old. There are definite days that I would like to wean my first born, but I think about how there probably isn't much time left that I'll be nursing my her. I don't see her nursing into being 4, even though she's definitely going strong at 3 1/2. She was only nursing at bedtime while I was pregnant, but now she asks for milk frequently through the day.

Re: Anyone else pregnant and BFing?

I became pregnant with my fourth when my third baby was 10 months old and 100% exclusively breastfeeding. I continued to nurse him throughout my pregnancy (thank God he started solids when my milk dried up.) He stopped when I had colostrum because he didn't like the taste, then picked right back up when my milk came in. Oh, was he happy! I am still nursing him (he turned 2 last week) right along side his 5 month old brother.
