He is 27 mths, I am almost 5 mths preggo. He has dropped practically thru the day feedsing. He mostly nurses at bedtime and in the morning. I have been more sore lately (as if getting past the first few mths wasnt sore enough) I checked and there is no milk whatsoever. Is it still ok to let him pacify or should I make him stop alltogether. Dealing with a pacifier habit was much easier than when it is actually attached to you. I am afriad if he does stop he will come back with a vengence when new baby arrives, I have never nursed more than one baby. Not sure what to do, I have read many moms tandem nursed while preggers but what do you do if the supply is gone??

some women see an increase in their milk in the third trimester, so it is up to you as to what you want to do. no harm in letting him continue to nurse whether or not there is milk there, he is doing it for comfort and closeness to mom. If you want him to stop, no harm in weaning him and as far as when the new baby comes, you can let him try to nurse again, or explain that it is for the baby and find other ways to stay close and connected to him besides nursing.

I dried up around 12 weeks and DD still nurses nearly 8 weeks later. Granted she hardly latches, but I let her. I figured either she will give up or she will continue and I will tandem nurse.
No harm in letting him continue if you don't mind the possibility of tandem nursing
I don't think it would cause your milk supply to be much more than usual when the new baby is born? I could be wrong though. I'm sure others have better advice.. LOL
