Pregnant & still breastfeeding 1st child
Hi,

I just found out that I'm about 5 weeks pregnant.
I still beastfeed my son when I get home and at night. I've been trying to wean him off with no success.

Would me breastfeeding him up until I get him off effect my
pregnancy. My son is 2 1/2 yrs old.

Can I take folic acid and Pregvit M at the same time?

You should stop breastfeeding. You need to conserve your nutrition for the pregnancy. It is not necessary to take extra folic acid if you are taking Pregnavit M. This contains sufficient.
