  • Loads of people get pregnant while breastfeeding on demand full-time. That's how "tandem Nursing" came about. You can be nursing while pregnant and after have 2 little ones nursing. I have even seen where the lady had 3 different aged little ones close together and all were nursing.

  • how did you find out you were pregnant? Is it safe to continue breastfeeding while you are?

  • Most women start having all the symptoms.

    Yep, perfectly safe to continue to nurse the older one while pregnant. And once the baby is born, both can still nurse.

  • I was TTC and took a test before my period was due, so I knew I was pregnant from the test.
    Yes it's safe to nurse through a normal, healthy pregnancy. Occasionally, a mom might have preterm labor issues and may need to stop for a bit, but not too likely.

    Are you pregnant & nursing?

  • Lots of info:  kellymom.com :: Nursing During Pregnancy & Tandem Nursing



    You might like to read Aventures in Tandem Nursing.   Ask for it through the library.
