Hi ladies! I posted similar in my DDC, but thought I'd get more response here! I'm still nursing my toddler, usually 2-3 times a day on average, mostly morning and evening. We found out last week that I'm FINALLY pregnant with #2 and due in June! I won't lie, I'm secretly hoping that my milk will dry up and Connor will decide to wean! However, I don't have high hopes lol, I've always been an over-producer of milk.

I'm mostly worried about him still wanting to nurse when I have super sore boobs! That was one of my biggest symptoms when I was pregnant with Connor, they hurt so bad I had to wear a sports bra to sleep! It was horrible! I'm afraid that they will hurt just as much this time around, and how the heck will I nurse through that!?

Any advice, suggestions, stories to share? If you're milk did dry up, how far along were you when it happened? Thanks ladies!!

I have two friends who recently nursed toddlers during pregnancy and their milk dried up around mid pregnancy or third trimester. Another friend, once she was pregnant her milk must have changed taste and her kids weaned. I think it is a YMMV deal, unfortunately.

I don't have any advice but wanted to say congratulations. We're wondering this too if we get pregnant again since my lo isn't anywhere done with nursing yet.

My older one was around the same age when I got pregnant. I dont remember when my milk dried up but probably somewhere around the mid mark. According to my daughter it wasnt completely dried up (I asked her to describe the taste, apparently like cheese) and she still liked to get those few drops of salty milk. I wasnt hoping to wean and if anything I hoped she'd still nurse as i had hoped to nurse to 3/let her self wean.

There was a point in the pregnancy where she wasnt all that interested in nursing and I think that if i had been meaning to wean her that I could have pushed weaning on her then without too much of a trouble.

I had nipple pain during most of the pregnancy but it was just pain for the first 5-10 secs. Nursing wasnt comfortable but it was OK. Some women dont have any pain while others have it. I think my breasts in general were definatly not as sensetive as with my first pregnancy. I remember at least that it would bug me to have stuff in my breast pocket of my work clothes during the first pregnancy but with the second I didnt care one way or the other.

I am pregnant, and still nursing (though i need to stop). At times it hurts, but its usually only the first 10 secs or so. My breasts were very sensitive when i was pregnant with Sam, but not so much this time.

Thank you so much Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
