Hi,
I'm due very soon with DS2 but I'm still bf DS1 who's 17mo morning and evening.
Do you have any tips on how feeding them both will work? DH is asking if I'll have enough "good milk" for DS2... I'm more concerned about DS1 refusing to share!
Thanks

Boobs are amazing and will know which baby you are feeding and make milk to meet both needs. Before you give birth DS1 may find that your milk changes back to colostrum but it will change back again.

It just happens. The milk is there for both babies and you will produce enough. You will be grateful for DS1's hoovering technique when your boobs feel like they are going to explode and the baby has tiny little suckles.

I did this. It was fine. I weaned them altogether when the younger was 1. I occasionally fed them together but more often separately. Dc1 obviously fed less, mostly morning and after nap.

I feel sad that dc3 has no bf buddy!
