Breastfeeding and pregnant

I am breastfeeding my five month old and I am pregnant. Will my milk supply slow down? Any tips or advice?

No it will not.  Continue doing your thing.  Your body knows what it needs to do.  Great job

It might slow just a little while your body adjust to the pregnancy hormones but as long as you nurse on demand and keep your little on the breast your body will readjust fast. It is perfectly safe to tandem nurse.

Oh there's someone else like me! My baby is 6 months and im breastfeeding too. We can do it just fine but we have to make sure we are eating very well to look after ourselves as our bodies are giving it all to both babies. Make sure you are having vitamin D everyday and axtra calories.  Lots of complex carbs. Its exhausting isn't it? ? :O

Very exhausting, and sorta scary. I just want to make sure I'm doing all the right things that way both my little blessings are healthy. And it's really nice to know I'm not the only one. Breastfeeding and morning sickness at the same time has become my new optical. I just hope the morning sickness goes away sooner than later.!

Its crazy I uave a ten year old too so have been doing the school run...and.ive been at university.  All a bit too much really.  Im a bit down in a way as really just wanted to enjoy my baby and get my.body back.

It is possible but as long as you're aware of it, there are steps you can take. I starved my brother when I was in utero before my mom found out she was pregnant with me. Her friend actually suggested she might be pregnant and sure enough...

I'm 13 weeks and breastfeeding an 11 month old. I've noticed my milk supply dropping since I became pregnant. Thankfully my daughter is close to a year so it's helping with the weaning process. According to Kelly mom most mothers experience a dip in supply when pregnant. Also your milk will change back to colostrum before the next baby comes, which your current baby may not like.
