Breastfeeding Mom's TTC


Any mom's currently breastfeeding starting to TTC?

This thread is to talk about how breastfeeding can affect our reproductive hormones while we TTC.

I'm currently night weaning my 2 year old son to hopefully bring back fertility. I haven't had any periods yet. Before starting to night wean he was nursing morning, nap and bedtime. I did have a positive opk on Feb 12th. Twelve days after starting to night wean. I'm not 100% sure I ovulated or if that was a long enough follicular phase....Guess we'll wait and see...

I weaned my son in hopes that the breastfeeding was what was affecting our fertility.... turns out I was wrong and now I miss it sooooo much �� I feel like such a �� mummy now xxx weaning is not always the answer. It worked for us before, but not this time xx

Jumped over here from our ntnp thread! Miraculously my DD slept from 7pm till 5:30am last night!?! Fed her and she went back to sleep. So that was a great stretch for no BF. Fx'd for a similar night tonight!! We'll see how it affects my (lack of) fertility .

Weaning the baby off was the only way to regulate my cycles

Well it was a one off. But anything is progress at this rate! Slow and steady!! Still nothing on the cm or opk front for me. One day I will have something exciting to post like you wnt2be :P.

So, here's a question. If I talk to my doctor about wanting to conceive again, she's just going to recommend weaning right? I'm kind of interested to know my prolactin levels because i could compare them to my levels previously...
