Hi all, I was wondering about your experiences with nursing on cue while pregnant.
My toddler is 2.5 years old and still nurses frequently. I am a SAHM and would estimate that she nurses maybe 6 times in a 24 hour period. Before and after naptime, a couple times during the night because we cosleep, and maybe twice during our daily activities. She seeks nursing for comfort and closeness.
About a month ago we had nursing down to 3 times in a 24 hour period, but because of a recent move and unfamiliar surroundings she is nursing more frequently again.
Two months ago I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks pregnant. We didn't know why. I had read many excellent resources that nursing in pregnancy is perfectly healthy, but I can't help but worry if the high frequency of nursing may have played a part. My toddler is very much a velcro baby and attached to nursing.
I've found that I am pregnant again and am worried about what might happen. Should I try to cut down on the frequency? Any insights or experiences would be really appreciated, thanks so much for reading.
