Ttc While Breastfeeding

Question: he anyone gotten pregnant while breastfeeding? My husband and I have decided to try for a second baby but my 1 year old is still very dependant on the breast. I'm just looking for some positive stories that don't involve weaning. Thanks!

It's a myth that you can't become pregnant while breast feeding. It will generally reduce chances but won't in most cases stop your chances of conception.

Yes i did, twice!

me too))

My husband and I found out I was pregnant on 9/19 last yr and I continued to nurse my then 18 mo old son for another few months. It is possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding...and continue after pregnancy. Our per told us our son would self wean at the 2nd trimester when my milk would begin to taste a bit different/less desirable. If u are having your period, start testing with an ovulation kit. I so look forward to nursing our 2nd boy in May! Good luck!
