Pregnant & Breastfeeding My Toddler

Hi Everyone,
Just wondering if anyone else is pregnant and still breastfeeding their last baby. My daughter is 13 months and still breast fed quite reguarly. I am 7 weeks pregnant and I am worried that I am not eating enough to supply enough nutrients to both babies. Its really taking it out of me though my baby girl isn't a huge food eater yet and refuses formula.
I feel like being pregnant and breastfeeding will wear me out plus my morning sickness is way worse this pregnancy, every strong smell (no matter what it is) makes me feel nauseas and I really don't have much of an appetite.
My daughter still feeds through the night, any suggestion on how to get her just to sleep through! I am so tired!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Pregnancy itself decreases the amount of breast milk and even can stop the production completely.This is completely natural.Try to wean your baby form now on and considering her present age it will not be a difficult problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
