I am nursing my 13 months old son and is expecting my second baby. Can I continue to breastfeed my toddler.. This is something that has been bothering me all the time. I do not want to stop nursing my son. Please suggest will this impact my pregnancy and the unborn.

Answer:
though the child can be breastfed for two years minimum but in your case it would be a burden on your body. You are putting a triple burden of nutrition on your body. Your child can eat a balanced diet but the foetus growing inside is entirely dependent on you.
