BF & pregnancy?
Wed, 01-05-2005 - 11:15pm

I believe that I may be pregnant, however, I am still nursing my 15 month old in morning and night.. I think he would give up the morning nursing, but I don't know how easily he will give up the night time nursing..

My question.. Is it safe to nurse if you are pregnant?

Yes it is! The only time I would question it, is if you have certain pregnancy complications and have been told not to have sex for fear of starting preterm labor. If you ever find yourself in that position, do a lot of researching on the facts and make the decision for yourself.

Here's a link to the pregnant and nursing board:

Nursing during pregnancy can be uncomfortable if you have sore nipples. But it does have rewards too! I reccommend "Adventures in Tandem Nursing: Breastfeeding During Pregnancy and Beyond" by Hilary Flower
