Breastfeeding while pregnant

I make fun of BabyCenter so much that I knew I had to share this positive article with you. When I saw the title in my e-newsletter -- "Is it safe to continue breastfeeding while pregnant?" -- I automatically shuddered and assumed the worst, that BabyCenter would recommend against it, claiming that it caused premature labor or was just weird.

But the article is written by lactation consultant Jan Barger, and it starts off "Absolutely!"

I was also pleasantly surprised by the commenters, usually more mainstream mamas, who often defied their ob/gyns' outdated and inaccurate advice to wean immediately, and who wanted to tandem feed their newborn and toddler.

Nice to see something so pleasant!
