DH and I are not actively preventing another pregnancy. My son is only 4 months old, and I would love to breastfeed him for at least a year. My SIL got pregnant at 7 months pp, and her son weaned at 10 months. She told me it was probably because the taste of her milk changed and her son didn't want it anymore.
Is this true? Maybe I should be preventing pregnancy for now if that's the case, because I really want to bfeed for a year.
I believe it does change, but most babies are willing to adjust to the taste. My son has anyway. We are still nursing and I'm almost 6 months pregnant and DS will be 9 months very soon I'm planning on nursing him for as long as he wants. If I were you I woulndn't worry about your baby self-weaning if you become pregnant, really what will be will be ya know!!
I think the taste does change. My son was really fussy at first (didnt know I was pg), but he adjusted eventually. at about 20 wks, my supply dropped dramatically. I have had to start supplementing Some people keep their milk the whole time, and others lose it early, so that is somthing to keep in mind. I really wanted to make it to a year also.
I believe the amount and taste changed in mine, cause dd was still going strong until just after her 1st birthday......we managed to still keep going till the 13 month mark, but she hasn't even looked back.
