We are trying to get pregnant again, Pedia says I should start weaning my 16 mo. (32 weeker preemie) off the breast because once I get preggy BFing can give me contractions (first pregnancy had complications). I know he BF more for comfort and I love our bonding, so how do I go about weaning gently and effectively?

'Pedia' is misinformed.



There is no correlation between breastfeeding and miscarriage or preterm labor. You're going to get contractions during pregnancy whether you breast feed or not.
