I EBF my nearly 12 mo (he turns 1 next week. Yikes!), I work full time, and I'm pregnant!!

I think my supply has tanked over the last couple of weeks and baby is definitely showing signs of weaning. He doesn't nurse in the morning any more, and he only nurses twice before bed (once when I get home from work, once as he's falling asleep).

I have a freezer stash so he gets milk while I'm at work and we've been giving him an extra bottle right before bed after he's done nursing to try to get him to be really full and sleep well throughout the night (which he still kind of doesn't do).

I finally stopped pumping. It was a totally relief!

I'm super sad because our nursing relationship is changing, but I hope he still latches when I get home from work, at night, and on weekends so that we can tandem when #2 comes along.

Any other ladies with experience tandem nursing?

Also, I'm ferociously hungry and I'm trying my best to not gain too much weight this pregnancy. With #1 I lost 10 lbs during my first trimester and had a net gain of 30 lbs. I lost it all fairly quickly, but I still have a good 40 pounds to go. 60 pounds would be ideal but unrealistic right now in my life.

I hope to meet some mama sparkers!
