Just wondering if I need to take any precautions. Roanin pretty much only breastfeeds. He eats a little bit of solids but not much. Any tips, stories? Thanks!!

Heidi-


Congrats!! How exciting for you :)


You don't need to worry about the baby-to-be and the nursing. What might happen, though, is that your milk may dry up and you'll need to supplement your 6-month old. I'm not exactly sure how that works; I suppose you need to just carefully watch diaper output and only supplement if that shows baby isn't getting enough.
