If you're breastfeeding a toddler and you're having another baby....

Will you still get colosterum when the new baby comes if you're still BFing the toddler?

  • My daughter described colostrum so I guess it went back for us.

    I *heart* nursing talking people, lol!

  • yes it does because the milk changes for the new baby

  • I'm curious too. I am a pro-breastfeeding mama, but I have never been pregnant and had a baby young enough to breast feed. I am pregnant with our 3rd right now, and I know we are not going to want to wait long to try for our 4th, so this will be an issue for us too.

  • I asked this before ;) and got multiple responses that the milk changes to meet the needs of the new baby. Not necessarily full colostrum, but some.
