Re: Nursing 9 month old & 6 weeks pregna
Mama, don't be too hard on yourself. When supply tanks due to pregnancy, there's little or nothing you can do about it. It's all about the way your body responds to the hormones of pregnancy, and something like 80% of pregnant nursing women see their supplies diminish or disappear. This is what formula is for- to fill the gaps when a mama is truly unable to produce enough. If you can stand to continue to nurse, I think you have an excellent shot at realizing your tandem nursing dreams. Remember that your baby doesn't need to be getting a 100% breastmilk diet in order to receive the benefits of breastfeeding!
