Has Your milk turned to colostrum. He will probably hang in there. Just a few more weeks yay!! And your mature milk will probably make him happy to pick up more frequent nursing.



Colostrum tastes really salty and Lydia didn't like it. It is kinda gross tasting IMO. Mature milk tastes a lot sweeter

Dairy doesn't increase your supply it's the calcium. I ate cheese and yogurt and took supplements. We don't really drink cow milk at our house but calcium is extremely important while pregnant so you can make all those little bones without it coming from your bones

I should probably introduce myself, so you ladies don't think I'm some creepy stalker (for those who don't already know me).



Hi! I'm "dream" and I have a cute little (ok, not so little) 6.5 month old I like to call WigglyBuns who is EBF. I didn't plan on TTCing #2 so soon, but AF started again last month, so anything is possible. I didn't know anything about tandem nursing or nursing during pregnancy until BG.



I thought I'd have to wait until my son was at least 2 (I plan to BF him at least that long) and THEN I could start to TTC. But I like the prospect of having one more and "getting it out of the way" (pregnancy didn't agree with me last time). :D



So I'm here to watch and learn all I can about tandem nursing and nursing during pregnancy. And kudos to everyone that's been there/ done that! :D:D

so I've always heard "your milk dries up when you are pg". Is this true just for some people or is it more of a supply/demand thing? For example, I have always had an oversupply (though it's starting to regulate better) and if I got pg right now, then I'd want to continue to nurse full-time. Would I have to worry about my supply drying up if my LO was still nursing as often as he usually does (every 1-2 hours)?

Mine never "dried up". Lydia didn't actively nurse after 14 weeks either so I'd say it's not true for everyone.
