Re: Pregnant after TTC while Breastfeeding! *February-March*

Marie-- mama. so sorry.

Elaine--welcome! I'm tandem nursing my nb and my 29mo. . .but he doesn't nurse much anymore and not in public (not that I care what anyone thinks when it comes to feeding my babies!). Hope it works out for you! I'm rather wishing we had weaned before the nb came along. . .

I'm sorry Marie.

thanks Lucinda! I have severe mixed feelings when it comes to tandem bf'ing. I'll probably just go with the flow. Right now she's pretty hard core addicted though, way more than my boys ever were.

I am very sorry Marie. I pray that time will make the wounds a little less raw. Allow yourself to feel and need whatever it may be, and lean on those around you. Take good care of yourself.

Oh Marie. I'm so incredibly sorry. You've been through so much in the last year. I just pray that you have lots of family and friends to hold you and comfort you while DH is away.

Re: Pregnant after TTC while Breastfeeding! *February-March*

mamas I have a question. is it normal for nursing in early pregnancy to be uncomfortable? it doesn't "hurt", my boobs don't hurt, my nips don't hurt, but nursing last night I felt like my skin was crawling. I couldn't stand it and ended up unlatching her and putting her in her own bed.

I'm going to start taking a supply and demand tea to try and up my supply some because this girl is boob obsessed and I really feel totally empty. The comfort nursing is awful though. Normal, or no?

I'm only 4.5 weeks. I know I have lots of milk during the day. I'm gonna try again tonight and see how it goes. If we have to night wean, I'd be ok with that.

Elaine--very normal. My ds night weaned on his own (yay!) with my drop in supply. Although he never lost his love for "mama milk" there was a time he wasn't getting much if anything. (I had the least milk btw 12 and 29 wks) And all through my pg I had varying levels of "ouchy" and just plain weird/skin-crawly/please-don't-touch-me feelings. Never was intolerable though. . .
