Do I have to stop breastfeeding my first so my second (whom I will have in 6 months) finds colostrum (the liquid we have before milk)?!

Nope. From what I understand, as the pregnancy progresses, your milk will slowly turn back to colostrum, sometime between the 4th and 8th month of pregnancy. Many pregnant and nursing moms find that their older child self-weans during this time because they don’t like the change back to colostrum.

This site has a lot of good information: http://kellymom.com/pregnancy/bf-preg/16...
