(BM being the primary food till 12months).
I can see why they would wean once you got pg but what would make them wean b/c of TTC?

Oh and yeah I think you still make colostrum when tandem nursing b/c your body knows to make it due to pg hormones.

Obviously i'm not BF yet but i'd like to nurse him for the first year. I can't see myself doing it much longer after that.

I plan to nurse for one year and let him self wean after that - I won't force him to stop if he's not ready yet...

Yup, you still make colostrum. That's why Lochy weaned about 5 months into my pregnancy--my milk changed over to colostrum and he wasn't a fan not to mention the supply just wasn't there anymore to keep his interest.
