I went to a La Leche League meeting in my area and there was a woman who was nursing a 3 year old and a baby. Both got plenty of milk and appeared to be very healthy. Another woman was pregnant and nursing her 2 year old.

Personally I would want to know about the colostrom the newborn wouldn't be getting. I didn't ask any questions though

I know this doesn't apply to you anymore since af reared her ugly head, but I thought I would let you know my experience. My son was 2 when I got pregnant with my now 6 month old, and he nursed at night and when he took his naps during the day. I was able to breast feed until I was 5-6 months pregnant, but I had to stop because my milk was drying up and it just became too painful to nurse anymore, and on top of that I was pretty much ready to stop anyways.

Obviously my situation doesn't apply to everyone, but I wanted to at least share my experience.

Glad to hear AF arrived, assuming thats what you wanted.
