I am nursing my 18 months old and currently three months pregnant, I must admit I am struggling to keep up, with the nipple sensitivity at an all-time high, and a demanding toddler, but I want to continue giving him all the nutrients I have to offer.
But I know that my stressing is not helping at all, so I am always worrying about how I am going to cope with tandem feeding if my toddler does not self wean.
I had problems with my let down reflex with my son as a newborn, and I would love to avoid a repeat of that this time around...

Will the breastmilk be enough for the baby in the womb (when she is born)?
Just wondering if the older child weans off the breastmilk slowly while the mother's pregnant, and eventually stops entirely (say halfway during pregnancy), will the milk supply be sufficient for the next baby when she is delivered? The milk won't dwindle, will it, despite the lack of stimulus from the suckling of the older child? I guess our hormones during pregnancy and after delivery will take care of that.

I am13 weeks pregnant and still BF my 14-month-old son. Not sure whether to stop BF before the new baby comes or carry on and tandem feed?? Am worried i will find it very tiring but don't want to stop BF my son earlier than i might have done if i hadn't been pregnant
I am 23 weeks pregnant and still nurse my 2-year-old boy, my son usually is a very jealous boy but breastfeeding when pregnant is helping him understand that there is a baby on the way.
There are times that he feels his baby sister move when he's getting breastfed and he unlatches to give my belly a little kiss and goes back to nurse he caresses my belly I work and when I get home we both cuddle and nurse and helps me relax.
I am planning to tandem feed, so my son can learn to share and learn to be gentle with babies.
So ladies don't let pregnancy stop you ^.^ (unless DR says so)
