A 41-year-old female asked:
how realistic is it to continue feeding a 4 mth old during my 2nd pregnancy? is it safe for me? will it trigger contractions? will i still produce milk? i want to safely manage pain & fatigue but give my baby my milk as long as i can.

Some basics: Many women successfully breastfeed 2 separately born kids continuously as they would twins.Yet there is some changes in early vs later milk that would effect the later born child.Many would take the kids cues to when to wean the 1st. If you must chase them down for feeding time or they are more interested in something else,wean the 1st.The nutrient benefit breast/bottle actually fades after 8 m
