Did you breastfeed through pregnancy?
I have only met a few mums that tandem breastfed, but each one had different stories about their experiences. I have heard that some mums do not breastfeed through the entire pregnancy, due to low supply, the baby weaning from the change in the taste of milk, or from painful or tender breasts, but they do resume breastfeeding once the new baby is born. I did breastfeed during my pregnancy, and I did experience some pain and some supply issues. I sometimes had to limit the times when my son could breastfeed, because I was so uncomfortable. I felt badly about it, but he was a bit older and could be distracted with food or a drink. He started breastfeeding again regularly once his little sister arrived. I was just curious if anyone weaned during pregnancy, but resumed breastfeeding their older child when the new baby arrived.

I personally persisted with the discomfort with breastfeeding during pregnancy. My son just loved to breastfeed - but I certainly understand why women would choose to wean. I know my supply dropped in pregnancy - but this did not deter my son. Once the new baby came - they breastfed together quite happily (and the discomfort thankfully disappeared).
