I'm new here and was going to post this question on MDC (and still may) but thought I'd see mamas here could share their experiences. I have a 9 month old and we're thinking about getting pregnant again in a couple of months. I have been extremely torn because as much as I look forward to having another one; I don't want my pregnancy to adversely affect my nursing relationship with my son. We have a very strong nursing relationship and he's just now getting interested in some foods, but milk is his primary source of nutrition (as I believe it should be for the first year). I'm aware nursing can be painful in the beginning, which is a big deterrent, as I want to continue our leisurely and relaxing "num num" sessions.My bigger concern is from reading that some mother's milk dries up around 4 or 5 mos. But I recently asked 3 different tandem mommies if theirs did, and it didn't. So, I'm wondering if the laws of supply and demand are still in effect here and if the nursing relationship is strong, your body will keep producing. Anyone out there nurse while pregnant? Did your milk dry up? Was your baby on only a few nursings a day or A LOT (like mine)? Thanks so much everyone!
