default bf while pg

Post by angpixi on Mon Aug 13, 2007 10:20 am

hi i thought id leave a post on this bit cos there wasnt one and i have bf while pg! i didnt have much support when i was bf my 2nd and got pg with no 3 so i just stopped even though i wasnt sure i wanted to. when i got pg with no 5 and was stil feeding i was initially told to stop imediately by a young dr. i went to a health visitor hoping for a bit more sympathy but she said to stop and just let her cry, which i wasnt happy about. when i talked to my own dr she said she had fed all of her kids while pregnant and as long as i ate well and took care to feed new born first it should be ok. i posted the question on bounty and was told a similar thing. this advice made me relax and enjoy bf again. due to this i was able to stop feeding in our own time and as slowly as we wanted without stress! im worried she might be a bit strange when this babe is born but have decided to take it as it comes and do whats comfy at the time! flower

How awesome, good luck! Are you still producing milk? What trimester are you in?

Now that I think back, I don't think I told my ob/gyn that I was breastfeeding while pregnant. I wasn't a high risk pregnancy, and I wasn't up for an argument to defend myself. I think it just slipped my mind. Oops.

Nursing while pregnant was extremely extremely difficult. Very uncomfortable, I was very touched-out, and often times it took every ounce of strength I had not to throw my toddler right off of me. The only comfortable position was lying down with him lying beside me. In the last trimester, I had painful contractions each time I nursed. But I got through that, and now, compared to that, tandem-nursing is a piece of cake!!!!

I will probably be pregnant and breastfeeding again sometime in the next year, but this time, I will be a little more emotionally prepared, now that I've been through it once.

hi again, ive only got a few (3or4) weeks left, the first three months were ok but then it started to feel really uncomfortable it did get to the point when i wanted to throw her off! but i didnt feel ready to stop! my nipples hurt alot and like you say there was no comfy place! i was torn but just let her lead. she doesnt bother now except now and again for comfort she kindof snuggles into position! ive a feeling she will have a go when she sees this baby doing it but am prepared for that!

hi willow is now 5 weeks old and weve had no major problems, aeryn hasnt shown any jealousy so far. even over the bf which i was prepared for. at bed time was going to be the worst so i get the baby to sleep first while aeryn reads or watches peppa! then i cuddle aeryn, she hasnt asked for any 'boob' though she has snuggled with her hand down my top! i know when she is feeling insecure because she holds her arms up and says 'two babas' which means i have to make room on my knee!!! i suppose im lucky, maybe it was just good timing when she stopped. oh in the first couple of weeks i had an overload of milk so i did express (for my sanity!) just enough to take away the pain an not interfear with production and aeryn had it before bed-didnt want to waste it! feel free to ask any questions if youre in the same boat ill answer what i can x x

Thanks so much for this post - It is very encouraging. I was sure I would have to stop BF right away when I fell pregnant, but now I know I can continue on Smile

We're not sure when we are going to wean yet - we have no plan - I always intended to let Anna nurse for as long as she liked and trust that she will self-wean when she is ready. I always secretly hoped she would go on to 2 years, but I know I will face criticism an judgement from family if I do...

I am now faced with the decision to make whether to wean Anna before baby #2 gets here - if baby comes along and THEN I wean Anna I think she might feel pushed out? So my options feel to wean her a few months before my due date, or carry on feeding her even AFTER I have had the baby? I think it will be the former... But nothing is set in stone!

Thanks again for this post - and for this forum! It's so relieving to come somewhere where I can say "I BREASTFEED MY TODDLER" something which is to me the most natural thing in the world, and not face judgement and sour looks and nasty comments. So glad I stumbled across here x
