Hello! Please dont respond if you are going to be negative about the age of my child breastfeeding!
I just found out that I am about 6 weeks pregnant. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it read positive, then again positive this morning. And today I went to the health department to confirm the test and it was positive! I am so excited, but the lady that I spoke to was an RN and she told me that I should stop breastfeeding right away because I am taking nutrients from my unborn child. I was crushed to think I have to completely STOP breastfeeding today. My son did not even have his first bottle with milk until he was 10 months old, but when I started working I had to transition him. My son does go to daycare and he only nurses at night, but he really enjoys that time to bond at night. I dont want to stop right now, I think it would be really hard on him...Considering all of the changes that he has been through the past 2 months.
I spoke to my lactation specialist and she told me that it is perfectly fine to continue breastfeeding all the way through my pregnancy.
My question is, Did you stop breastfeeding when you became pregnant? If so, how did you make this transition easier for your baby? What do you think is the right decision?
