Affected how? It isn't strictly ideal, but you absolutely can still breastfeed when pregnant. By the time a second child might need to breastfeed, you can have weaned the first.

I'm not sure how else you might think your newborn would be affected?

You being pregnant now (if you are) won't hurt your newborn any. If you are breastfeeding... you 'might' have a supply issue. Some women can successfully breastfeed throughout a pregnancy and tandem feed both kids. Some women can't. Formula can be used if you are pregnant and end up unable to continue breastfeeding.

There may be a bit of 'jealousy' over the newborn and you struggling to juggle two babies at once, but... both of those issues are short lived and your older one won't even remember not having a younger sibling.

That is all assuming you ARE pregnant right now.... which might not even be the case. Hang in there. Either way things will have a way of working out.

Take a pregnancy test and/or go to the doctor. It's pointless to panic when you don't even know what's going on.

It's true that you could be pregnant. If you find out that you are, you and your husband will have to discuss your options. If you're not pregnant and don't want to be, use protection. Your doctor should be able to discus the available options that are safe for you to use.
