I'm 11 1/2 weeks pregnant and nursing a 19 month toddler. He still nurses quite a bit and I haven't noticed any changes in my supply so far or his frequency. However, lately his poops look more like a newborn's (definitely smells like toddler poop though) - bright yellow and seedy.
I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? It occured to me today that perhaps my milk is beginning to change. I'm not at all concerned about it but I'm really hoping we can continue nursing through pregnancy and beyond so I'm curious.
Thank you

I noticed that when I was nursing my daughter through my last pregnancy. My supply stayed up the whole time, but I noticed more and more colostrum the further along in my pregnancy I was, but it didn't switch completely until the very last couple of weeks.

Good to know. I've spoken to a few ladies who had a similar experience. I'm hoping I'll be the same

I have no experience nursing through pregnancy but my daughter is 17 months and I have noticed that her poop will look seedy and newborn-like the days she doesnt eat any solids and is just on breastmilk.

I think my supply was down to barely there although DD said she was getting something. I remember that her poop turned to mustard coloured but the texture staid the same. I kept waiting to find a full on milk poop but never did.

My supply has dropped quite a bit already and I am only 6 weeks! My son is 11.5 months and so I really notice.

When I was preggers with the Zekesters, my DD started noticing changes in my milk after the second trimester, and started acting like it tasted weird, and completely self weaned at 15 months old(except for the 2 second checks she would do every so often to see if my milk still tasted that way lol). And that was half-way through my second trimester. I was heartbroken a little bit, lol, because I had really wanted to tandum nurse.
