    I’m not sure I will be on this chat later but I do have a couple questions that I hope to get answered :)

    1. Can you breastfeed and be pregnant at the same time? If so, do you recommend weaning as early as possible or can you breastfeed throughout the pregnancy?

    2. My 5.5 mo old baby nurses throughout the night (we co-sleep). When should I expect my baby to lessen her feeding during the night to possibly transition to a crib? I work full time during the week, she doesn’t eat very much during the day, and will nurse like crazy when I get home from work.

    As a sidenote, both bf babies and formula fed babies can be little sumo wrestlers and have rolls of fat on their legs and arms. A bf baby however, once crawling and moving around, will lose that weight quickly but a formula fed baby does not hence the increase in the amount of obese children who have never lost the formula fat they accumulated in the first year of life.

    Dr. Perez,
    I am breastfeeding my second child and as with the first, one breast is far more productive than the other, and this time
    leaving one at least a cup size larger than the other (making me a little self conscious). Any tips on evening out production and therefore size? I try to start my son on the lesser side each time but it doesn’t seem to work. Any tips are appreciated. And congrats to you! Thank you!!
