Hi ladies, I haven't been in for ages but I'm in need of some wisdom. My dd is 17 months old, she is bf on demand, although I am trying a bit of distraction during the day. We cosleep and she feeds during the night at least once. We would really love another baby and I know dd would love a sibling. I've always wanted a few at least so I don't know how much bfeeding will affect my chances of conceiving. My periods returned about 1 year postpartum, and are fairly regular. I am not against the idea of weaning gradually, but I don't know how to go about it and if it is necessary. It took us about 9 months of trying to conceive dd. The added complication is that I would really like to get cracking!!! I hope this doesn't sound terrible, but My husband and I run a business which is very busy during the summer and quiet during the winter. The difference for us between having a baby in the summer (when he is working flat out and members of staff are in and out of the house contantly) or in the peace of winter is vast. If I could wave a magic wand the due date would be 1 year from now! I know, probably won't work out that way!!! But what are the thoughts on bfeeding and conceiving?
