Nursing while Pregnant

"Can nursing while pregnant cause sleep changes in my toddler?

Almost immediately after getting pregnant (I am about 8-9 weeks pregnant), my 18-month-old boy is having shorter naps and waking up earlier in the morning. Could this be related? He is otherwise his same old self, happy and adorable."

Breastfeeding During Pregnancy

by: Lyssa


"Nursing while pregnant is a normal and natural occurrence. Frequently, moms get pregnant while still nursing one or even two other babies and/or toddlers.

There is usually a report in a change in the taste of the milk, or later in pregnancy, possibly a drop in supply due to significant hormonal changes. There is no known connection to nursing while pregnant causing a shift in the nursling's sleep patterns.

Have you researched "wonder weeks"? A big change in their brain happens around 18 months. Teething can also cause a shift in sleep patterns.

Any change in your diet that increased caffeine or energy drinks could also transfer into your milk to your toddler. Also, any significant changes in your life can cause your baby's sleep schedule to be thrown off-moving, new people, new school, new routine, etc.

Keep on nursing, mama. You are doing great!"

"Hi Fuad

She can definitely continue to breastfeed. It is completely fine; many moms around the world do this.

Your child may want to stop breastfeeding during her last months of pregnancy, when her milk turns from mature milk into colostrum, due to the taste of the milk changing (becoming saltier), but you should try to encourage Baby to continue since this milk is perfect for both newborns and toddlers.

She may feel overwhelmed when the newborn arrives, with two to breastfeed, so make sure that she is not stuck with too much responsibility in the first few weeks...so that she can dedicate most of her time and energy to them.
