sure. It can be challenging, but you can try!

I bf'd my first until I was about 4 months along. The hormones were changing the flavor and making him sick to his stomach! Some people nurse all the way up until the next one comes and 'tandom nurse'- just make sure you are giving the majority of the milk, especially the hind milk, to the newborn if you choose this route. Also, be sure your calorie intake is high enough to sustain bf'ing and growing your little nugget :D Also just know that being pregnant can sometimes dry you up- especially if you were already starting to wean. Good luck supermom.
