    Ive always wondered this, does your body create colostrum again for the new baby? How does the new baby cope with the abundance of milk that the other child is getting?

    Sorry if I sound ignorant but ice ways wonderedhow it works and would be good to know if I'm ever in a position to be able to nurse two at once :flower:

    Your milk changes back to colostrum about midway through the pregnancy. Occasionally the older child will temporarily wean until the milk comes back in properly after the new baby is born, but usually they don't seem to mind just having colostrum.
