    Hi Raish,

    Many mums breastfeed their infants/toddlers while pregnant. It's called tandem breastfeeding.

    Here are a couple of threads that discuss this in more detail.

    Have you tandem breastfed?

    Hi Raish,

    You may experience a dip in supply, but as Kate said, many mums breastfeed throughout the duration of their pregnancy and it is perfectly safe. Congratulations and good luck!

    Breastfeeding during pregnancy is not harmful. As mom2many said you may experience a dip in supply. Also you may experience nipple soreness. Some toddlers wean themselves when their mother falls pregnant. Others continue to breastfeed quite happily.
