Im still nursing my 16 month old. When do you plan on weaning? Ive heard that nursing can make morning sickness worse.. Ugh I hope not!!! I was planning on letting her self-wean, but we'll see! I dont know if I'd be up for tandem nursing....

I am and oh man has it been awful My milk supply has pretty much instantly gone down a LOT so now Evie will nurse for about 3 minutes, realize not much is coming out, and then bite down. She has been biting me almost every time she nurses now for a couple weeks. She is only 10 months and I was planning on nursing well into a year old - you are lucky your LO is 16 months!! But yes...I am trying to still give her as much as I have and very recently had to introduce whole cows milk (she wouldn't take formula).
Eeek, I am still nursing too! Glad I am not the only one. My daughter has a selective IGA deficiency so I feel like the extra antibodies she gets from the breast milk outweigh any reasons to wean for the pregnancy. Plus, she still loves her boobie before she goes to bed.
I would be if I were able to! I've always had issues breastfeeding, and tried especially hard with my little guy because he has severe allergies... But he is still on the bottle (comparably) at only 10 months old.
Yup, still nursing my 17 month old with no issues at all. I'll keep going for as long as he wants.
This is my first time nursing 2, tho and it made me think... I won't get colostrum because my milk is in, will I? Does that have a negative effect on the baby? I suppose I should be asking Google this, but I never think to when I'm on the web because I am SUPER absentminded lately & this topic made me think of it again.
