  • Many women have a hard time with it, so-- hopefully!
    But I did it all the way through! :-D

    Sometimes the hormones cause the supply to decrease. That can be painful for mom when the child is suckling. The child can get frustrated if they're not getting much milk, they end up weaning.

  • Yes you can (we are right now). Check out the LLL and Kelly mom websites for some great info, then come join the Pregnant and Tandem Breastfeeds group =-)
