Is anyone still breast feeding? Have you noticed a change in supply? My LO is only 5m & he is completely refusing to breast feed. Idk if it is because I have no supply & he's frustrated. We have always had issues, he refused the BF the first 3m so I pumped. Frustrating situation.. *sigh*

I am not still bf'ing but having pregnant friends who were in my last DDC, I was told the hormones can change the taste of the milk and effect your supply. Some babies will just wean themselves. I would encourage you to get on a bf'ing board and talk to some ladies who have been through this and see what they sugges to keep him nursing. That would be a terrible shame at only 5 months.

I am in the process of weaning my son, as we exclusively BF when he was a baby & did extended BF up until now. He's not been as interested since I became pregnant, but it's a non-issue considering his age & it makes weaning easier. I agree with the above post. In addition, you can contact your local LLL for support as well. More info on BF while pregnant:

I'm still BFing my 10 month old. I haven't had any issues yet. I heard that the time when milk supply usualky drops isn't until around the 15th-20th weeks. But I wouldn't rule it out as a cause. There's a facebook group called "Tandem nursing" you can join and ask the ladies there. You just have to pm the admin to be added.

Thx for the advise ladies. I met w/ LC & since my LO is on a complete strike & won't nurse @ all, my only option is to pump. I am only pumpin 1oz every 4hrs. If I pump every 2hrs, I get 1/2oz...

We have a girl in our PR that has a TON of info to help with keeping up your supply. She's not pregnant (but she has worked up an oversupply and donates), but a lot of her suggestions can still help you. Note she has done a lot of research on this, so it can't hurt. Some topics are:


Good luck!
