I need some help here. Currently im stilll breastfeeding my 10mths old baby and i just found out that im pregnant. Can i still continue to breastfeed?
Congrats to you too! I saw my gynae n he told me its beta if i stop bf. Iszt true? how many mths r you pregnant now? Iszt really not ok to bf?
dont need to stop breastfeeding .. i guess your gynae isnt pro breastfeeding eh.. i know of alot of mummies who did tandem breastfeeding.
you can do reading up also online on tandem breastfeeding.
I was still nursing my 2 yr old (twice a day) in my 2nd trimester. My Gynae said it was ok. I just had to make sure I eat well - eat nutritious food.
Thanks for all e advices.... I just had another concern... when you r stayin at e hospital after delivery, hw did you bf your older child?
And for those who r tandem nursing, do you co-sleep with all of your children?
Just went for check up. Now 11th weeks . Doctor also advice me not to bf my dear son anymore. Sad....now having problem to stop bf dear son!!
actually my gynae say no need to stop bf as long as you dont have contraction , cramps or spotting. but she did mention that the milk will get lesser and the taste will be diff. baby will automatically refuse breast milk. for me, i also had problem stoppin baby to latch on. let her cry 1 night. very persistant. today is the 3rd day she not latch on or drinkin bf . but now im having prob tryin to wean off? very painful n swollen breast. even when carry baby also painful.
still can bf.
emmmm....can i use mandarin?
sorry，my english is no good.

How many mths are you pregnant now and how much is your 10 month old drinking from you? Finally how comfortable are you with bfg during pregnancy?
I did a review on the book on the book "The Adventures of Tandem Nursing" by Hilary Flower in 2005 which was republished again recently and later on the web.
Breastfeeding Mothers' Support Group (Singapore) - Adventures in tandem nursing: during pregnancy & beyong By Hilary Flower
You might like to have a read and explore the possibility with your gynae. I know many mums who change their gynaes to a more supportive one just to bf during their pregnancies too. Utimately as a mother, you decide what is best for yourself, your child and your soon-to-be born child.
If you like to talk, just pm me and i could call you.

breastfeeding through pregnancy isn't the easiest thing but it can be done. As long as you can have s**, you can nurse your child.
I've breastfed through two pregnancies and my babies just kept getting bigger and bigger. So it kinda proves that my breastfeeding didn't harm the baby at least in terms of weight.
Read Adventures in Tandem Nursing. Its a really good resource and full of answers for the questions you're gonna have.
anyone still active here.
Im a mummy to a 2++yr old boy and would like to know more bout tandem bf.
As we're planning to trying to concieve for #2 come next yr.
