It will have absolutely no effect on the breastmilk or baby unless.. .
*sexual partner is wasting the milk that should be in reserve for the baby
*sleeping with multiple partners puts you more at risk for STD's so your baby would be more at risk
*if a woman has multiple sexual partners, this will lower her levels of oxytocin which in turn could damage her ability to bond with baby and/or with her partner(s)

If you are no longer with the father of the child, then it's okay to date and have sex, but you should always use condoms, and possibly another BC method in case the condoms fail, to help protect against diseases. If you are still with the father, then stop sleeping around. It could blow up and cause him to leave and fight you for custody of your child. If you've shown reckless behavior, you could lose your child.

I was just thinking the same, Michelle, that we've had this question before, and the fact that it is an odd question is why I remembered it.

You run the risk of getting pregnant again, having multiple partners and multiple baby daddies.

What else can happen? Sexually transmitted disease. A pissed off husband. A divorce, possible a loss of custody...Worst case scenario, that is.

This exact same question was asked a year or so ago. Very strange.
In response, nothing "happens".

The same thing that happens when you have sex w/ any man at any time... you open yourself up to the possibility of pregnancy and STDs.
