Yes, women can safely nurse an older baby during a healthy preganacy. If you are experiencing any complications in this pregnacy, please check with your health care provider about your particular situation.

I'm 16 weeks pregnant and currently nursing my 14 month old. Ask your OB about it but if you had a healthy pregnacny with your first (no history of complications) and everything looks good with this one as well there is no reason you can't continue to nurse your older child. I do plan on weaning before the new baby arrives but I've heard of women that do tandum nursing.

I asked my daughter's pediatrician when I was pregnant if it was ok to breast feed while trying to get pregnant because I had head/read it wasn't. (I knew at the time I would still be nursing when trying to get pregnant the 2nd time) Her doctor said it is perfectly fine! Think about what women did 100's of years ago when they used to breast feed their children for a few years, they did it while they were pregnant!
