Anyone having trouble breastfeeding?

Has anyone had any experience of breastfeeding whilst pregnant? Anyone's little one start refusing to feed?

DS is almost 15 months and I'm 10+3 with DC2. Last night and tonight we settled down to our bedtime feed (the only one he takes now) and he latched on, pulled a face, and burst into tears. I'm wondering if my milk has changed? My midwife said it wouldn't until right at the end when my milk becomes colostrum again, but I don't know what else could be the problem? He's never refused milk before.
If he's decided he's finished then that's fine, but I suppose I'm just a bit sad!

Think it's pretty common - the hormones make your milk taste different, so the toddler doesn't like it so much

There's a section under feed the world about feeding babies I'm sure you'll get more answers from women currently breastfeeding smile
