Drop in supply?

I haven't had a drop in supply yet but I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and nursing my 16 month old. When I was pregnant with my son & nursing my daughter my supply dipped and she weaned herself when I was 9 weeks pregnant. I don't want this to happen this time I want to try and keep it up as much as possible. It wasn't an issue for her cause it was a couple of days before her 2nd birthday so I was excited to make it that far. But I will be absolutely heartbroken if he weans before he is 2 lol.

He may or may not wean, and might even start back up if he were to stop for a while. No way to tell, really.

I agree with MusherMaggie.  Ive nursed through 2 pregnancies and tandem afterwards but some of it was dry nursing

You're far more dedicated than me! I'm 9+3 weeks, and I have not noticed a drop in supply at all. Actually, I feel let down more & Caroline is gulping milk. I'm beyond ready for her to wean. If she would just night wean, I'd be thrilled. No part of me wants to nurse two kids at once. Nope. No way.

Reed still nurses every 1-2 hours at night so I feel ya lol. I don't want to nurse 2 kids either but I don't want him to wean before he is 2. If
He does I feel like I'm depriving him of nutrients his sister
Got. Idk I'm weird haha. He turns two 2 days before my due date so I am not exactly sure how
It's going to work
