Can you breastfeed your entire pregnancy?

I just had a baby in November, and I just found out that I am pregnant. I’m full of emotions and worry. One thing is my breast milk. I’m pumping and I worry that it will go away once I’m further along in my pregnancy. Has anyone been able to pump or breastfeed the entire time?

im 35weeks pregnant and my 19months still nurse. my production dropped at 20weeks through my pregnancy and at 23weeks stopped.

Unfortunately, pregnancy is hormone based, and many women do lose supply or see a drastic decrease in the first trimester. It’s more likely you will need to supplement, but definitely not impossible. You could be one that is able to keep the supply. Just watch for diaper output and monitor babies weight as well. Try to not stress about it. I like the group tandem nursing.

My doctor told me I had to stop because i started getting contractions around 27 weeks she said since I was producing milk my body was saying it’s time to go into labor and it’s way too early!

I was able to. But I know it’s not like that for every woman.

I tandem fed my boys while being pregnant with my twins until 34 weeks. It just depends on your body❤️

When I became pregnant of my son I was still breastfeeding my then 18 month old. I think I dried out soon after because she stopped on her own which was good because Dr had told me to stop by 20 weeks into my pregnancy to avoid an early birth

it all depends on your body some women can do it some can’t

I’m almost 7 months pregnant and still nursing my 1 year old. I only let her nurse at night and unfortunately throughout the night too

I lost my supply completely by the time I was 14 weeks pregnant with #2. I ended up having to wean #1 because it hurt way too bad to dry nurse and he was SO mad that his milk was gone.

I was able to breastfeed my son until he self weaned 2 weeks before my baby was born. He was 2.

Breastfed mine up until the night before I had my new baby :heavy_heart_exclamation:

Yes, you can breast feed through your entire pregnancy.

I lost my daughter at 22 weeks and 4 days to a beautiful still born I was still milking three months later when I found out I was pregnant with my son and through out my pregnancy with him but when he was born I was able to breast feed him for two weeks then my doctor told me to switch to bottle because I was starving him it might be different for everyone :revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts::revolving_hearts:

My son breastfed until I was around 25 weeks. Around that time the taste of the milk changed and he self- weened.

Girl instead of asking fb ask your ob-gyn. Every person is different just because someone may have been able to breastfeed throughout their pregnancy doesn’t mean that you will be able to. It’s best to ask your Ob-gyn. Good luck to you

My friend was able to nurse the whole time, then her milk switched back to clostum after delivery. I know nipple stimulation can lead to pre term labor but she didn’t have an issue and now tandem nurses.

Yes you can. The only thing is you may have mild contractions. Nursing while pregnant is perfectly fine.

Some people can for sure! But also don’t feel guilty if you can’t do it. You’re doing the best you can

I’d be more worried about overstimulating your uterus this early on
