As I laid in bed the other night, it hit me... If I got pregnant .... Most likey my milk supply would tank and I may not be able to bf Rilynn.
I did a lot of googling and some moms found their supply disappeared as soon as a month after conceiving, while others it was about 4 to 8 months along. Some continued breastfeeding the entire time. While others couldn't.
If I knew "for sure" my supply would hang around for another 4 to 8 months I'd be ok with that.
And it's not so much that I may have to supplement (which I'd be ok with if my supply hung around till mid pregnancy when it changes to colostrum), its more if my supple completely goes away and I have to stop breastfeeding entirely. I'm lovin the breastfeeding bond I have with her.
Ideally, I'd want to breastfeed Rilynn till I gave birth (with some supplementing if needed) and then tandem nurse both babies.
