    Hello...just a quick question.

    I am breastfeeding (save for one bottle at night time) and had my first (although very short and light AF last week).

    My OH and I are thinking about trying for number 2 in the next few months but I want to carry on breast feeding. Does anyone have any experience of this?

    Good luck.

    Some people ovulate just fine and can become pregnant easily while bfing.

    The only caution would be if you have any medical history that could increase your risk of a miscarriage. Some people can bf the first few months of pregnancy, others can have an increased risk of miscarriage.

    Some people experience their milk drying up too.

    It really depends entirely on the individual.
