Hi ladies,
I'm 30 weeks pregnant and still BF my 17 month old. I am constantly being told my unborn baby can not be getting any goodness from me as my son is taking it all.
My midwife said this is rubbish.
I am now once again worrying if I am doing the right thing? Can anyone help?

Many mothers tandem nurse. You do need to be sure you meet the newborn's needs first. But the baby will be fine during the pregnancy as long as you as well nourished.

Your midwife is right. Most toddlers will self wean when you become pregnant because your milk can change but some women do manage to breastfeed both a toddler and newborn.
Ignore those that tell you otherwise or tell them to do their research.
