My Son Is Going To Be 12 Months Old. And I Also Just Found Out That Im Pregnant. I Was Told To Stop Brestfeeding. But My Son Will Not Give It Up. Like I Have Cut It Down To Only 2-3 Times A Day. And Some Day Not At All. But He Will Throught A Tantrum And Wont Want Anything Else But For Mr To Feed Him. He Will Even Try To Pull Up Or Down On My T-shirt. What Should I Do?

who told you to stop? if he isn't ready and you aren't ready there is no reason to stop. you can nurse while preg. check out this link.

maybe they were worried about the weight of him on your fetus. i would exercise caution to that but would not stop unless i wanted to. at 12 mos you must want to at times. mine is 11 mos and i get the occasional want to ween thing. im not sure how to go about it though.

there are many other postitions that you can nurse in when your baby belly gets bigger. some doctors still have outdated info about breastfeeding. it is compeltly safe. some women do see a decline in milk supply because of all the preg. hormones but if you still have milk go for it!

Hi Rebeca!
I got prgnant with number two when my son was just 10 months old and continued to breastfeed him til he was 14 months. The reason I waited those four months (although I also was told by variuos people to stop breatsfeeding him) to wean him was becuase I did it very slowly so there was hardly any trauma to my son (or myself!) at all. I just started moving feedings further and further away from eachother, feedings until I was down to just one right before bed. He liked trying new foods so I gave him lots of new foods during meal times to explore. In those four months he was very ready to give it up and my new baby (currently 6 weeks) hasn't seemed to suffer at all from it. He was a nice little chunk (7 and half pounds a week and half early!) and I am now breastfeeding again with no problem. Get a second opinion, take your time, and take your prenatals! Good luck!
