Hi Mommas..
I just found out I'm pregnant 5-6weeks base on my calculation. My first son now is 15mo and still breastfeeding, is it ok n safe to continue breastfeed ? Since last night I try to wean him and it became struggle for both of us and he end up sleeping on my chest all the time. I feel so bad for him

It's fine... but my son weaned himself at 18 months when I was 3 months pregnant because my breast milk turned salty :(

Yes it is. As long as there are no complications with regards to your pregnancy. As long as your pregnancy isn't complicated. I am currently 7mos pregnant and still breastfeeding my daughter who's almost 3y/o.

Totally OK I nursed my first born all the way through my first pregnancy and continued to tandem nurse him until he was two and a half and his little brother was 7 months. It was tough at times but I felt like it was totally worth it because it gave them a special bonding time too. It was also nice to still have special mommy one on one time with my older son, it helped him get over his jealousy pretty quickly.

I wasn't able to nurse while pregnant, my supply took too big of a hit and I had to stop.  Be sure to mention it to your doctor and go with the advice.
