can u BF when u are pregnant?


I have a 4 month old and i am most likely pregnant i go in in a week to make sure. and i want to know if u can BF when u are pregnant? I have heard that when u BF u have a less likely chance of getting pregnant plus we were safe but a at home tast said i was...I normally have my kids 4-6 weeks early does that make it even more unsafe?

  • It is not unsafe at all.. please DO NOT let anyone scare you out of Bfing while pregnant. I breastfeed my daughter and I'm 5.5 months pregnant and I plan to continue. My OB told me to stop because they are uninformed, if you read the correct information there is no proof that breastfeeding during pregnancy is causing any harm to your unborn child. Now if you have a history of miscarriage then they may advise you to stop but otherwise it is safe. It is true you should increase your calorie intake. Also you may notice you become very tired much easier. Good luck!

  • Its not that its necessarily unsafe, but you definitely want to be eating super healthy and taking your vitamins every day.

    Between breastfeeding and being pregnant you have to make sure that there are enough nutrients left over for you!!

  • YES, you CAN breastfeed while pregnant UNLESS yours is a high risk pregnancy.

  • My son was 9 months old when I got pregnant with baby #3 and I BF him for 3 months while I was pregnant. I agree that it isn't unsafe to BF while pregnant.
