Hi Ladies, Wanted to start a thread for anyone breastfeeding while pregnant or tandem feeding a baby and toddler. Would love to talk to others as literally don't know anyone in the same situation. Heres a little about my experience, I have breastfed my son who is now nearly 20 months from birth, exclusively breast milk for the first 6 months. Initially when I started breastfeeding I wanted to make it to at least 1 breastfeeding as I didn't want to give my lo formula and thought at that point I could introduce cows milk. Anyway when my lo was 10 months I found out I was pregnant with baby no 2 who is 7 weeks old today I am a extremely stubborn person and I knew I wanted to continue breastfeeding until my son was at least a year. And omg the pain at times Fortunately, I got use to it and it did get better! Anyway....on I went breastfeeding all through the pregnancy. The evening I went into labour (my due date) with my dd my son was ill with norovirus (so was I but that's a whole different story!!) Anyway he was very unsettled and at around 10.30pm he was awake and very much wanted boobie Anyway, he certainly helped induce labour My dd was born at 6am the next morning after a pretty pain free labour and me only arriving at the hospital 25 minutes before she was born! I had to stay in hospital as I was so ill after giving birth, my blood pressure dropped and I was still suffering badly from the norovirus. This was the first night I ever spent away for my ds! Anyway when I arrived home OMG I did not prepare myself for how my ds would react to me breastfeeding my dd. It was the most heart-breaking thing I have ever had to witness and now 7 weeks on we have got through the early days beginning our tandem feeding journey. Anyway would love to chat to others and I'm here if anyone has any questions about breastfeeding while pregnant or tandem feeding. Hope I can help.
