What LCs Say...

this is the compilation of among the LCs advise on my current problem (for my friends' and my future reference [if this happen again]):

from Rita (Moms Little Ones)
Please understand that pregnancy does affect milk supply. So, technically, do expect your milk supply to dwindle over time. However, you can still continue to breastfeed your older baby.

May I suggest that you ensure the 11mth old baby gets more solid food and perhaps introduce Organic Soya for him to drink? It would be better than giving cows milk since it does not contain cows milk protein which is bad.

from Vivian (Fabulous Mom)
Your milk will slowly decrease as you progress in your pregnancy. That’s what happened to me when I was pregnant with my second child and was still nursing my first.

We had no choice but to offer other forms of milk like soymilk, oatmilk, formula milk until I delivered my baby and which my milk comes in and enough for my first child and the new baby.

from Teglene (La Leche Legue)
Women who breastfeed while pregnant often find their milk supply decreases around the fourth or fifth month. If your breastfeeding baby is less than a year old, watch his weight gain to be sure he is getting enough to eat. It's also not uncommon for the flavor of your milk to change. These changes may prompt some older babies to nurse less often or to wean entirely.

Some moms are able to increase their production by nursing more frequently.

This evidence backs up the rule of thumb that states that, when a mother nurses during pregnancy, her nutrition stores go first to the baby in utero, second to the nursing toddler, and last, to her. That's why it's so important to eat a healthy diet. There's nothing in particular you have to eat or shouldn't eat, but it is very important to eat a balanced diet.

when finding the solution, i came across these:
from Vivian (Fabulous Mom)
For now, you can consider taking the Biogreen oatmilk which is safe for pregnant moms and help in maintaining milk supply.

(already made the order!)

from Judith (Mother Love)
The only Motherlove product that is safe to increase milk supply while pregnant and nursing is More Milk Two Alcohol Free.

(but only available in US)
we just decided to follow the flow. let Hafiy on Isomil, at least until Adik is here. then hopefully can continue breastfeed him.
