Re: yup I am preggo-nursing while pregna
I just wanted to speak to this point for a second, because it is a huge misconception and I really wish the information wasn't out there the way that it is. Once you started pumping and then again when you started cereal, you are no longer exclusively breastfeeding. It seems like I'm mincing words, but the literal meaning of exclusively means nothing else but baby to the breast. And we all throw that word around. I say I'm exclusively breastfeeding my son because he never has any bottles and I don't pump. But he's 13 months old and getting food. As soon as he took his first bite. As soon as he put something else besides my nipple in his mouth he was no longer exclusively breastfed. And even then, honestly, the body does weird things. It's hard to predict what's going on inside of us.
