Has anyone asked their Dr. if it is safe to bf while pregnant?? Has anyone bf one of their children while pregnant with another??

I got pregnant with my second when my first was 9 months old. I continued to BF after doing some research and learned that it was TOTALLY ok. La Leche was a great resource for me! What I did find though was my nipples got quite sore, similar to the way they felt when I started breastfeeding him when he was born. I found out that that was normal, due to hormonal changes from the pregnancy. They went back to normal after a month or so. I also had a slight aversion to my son while breastfeeding, again, hormones to blame! I really thought hard about continuing to breastfeed my first while breastfeeding my new daughter as well (tandum), but decided that wasn't for me, althought many women do that. I breastfed my first until he was 14 months, and then took a break before my daughter was born 3 months later. Good luck with your pregnany and BF, you are making the right choice!!! Take care!
