Can I nurse my toddler while pregnant?

Yes, I have nursed through a couple of pregnancies and gone on to tandem nurse (see my Tandem Nursing post here: https://moms.com/post/66820/tandem-nursing/

The issues I had with with nursing while pregnant were very sore nipples at the beginning of my pregnancy so with a couple I weaned my toddler because not only were my nipples sore I felt my space was infringed upon, if that makes sense. I almost felt suffocated because my pregnancy was taking over my body etc, and then I had this toddler in my space too for nursing. The pregnancies I successfully nursed through these things were not so much of an issue. Sometimes my milk supply just dried up for some reason later in my pregnancy but once I gave birth I had more than enough for two.

What about you, have you nursed your toddler while pregnant?

Our youngest son was our only boy to pretend to nurse. It cracked us up! All our girls pretended to nurse their baby dolls. :)
