    I've not heard that before... I know you can get prego while breast feeding (my friend did!)- but higher chance of twins??? Not sure if that's true?

    I think there are studies to back up just about any theory, if you look hard enough... the curse of google... haha

    Well I'm still breastfeeding, as why I've come across this on google, there's probably been one instance where some one has breasted and had twins, and it's been put down to breastfeeding :haha:

    It depends on how much you are feeding, whilst you are soley(8-10 feeds a day) bf ov is inhibited but as soon as you start to wean/mix feed ov is likely to occur..will get the official stats from my bf books but i got preg whilst feeding:thumbup:

    Perhaps you are more likely to release more than 1 egg due to hormone changes that can occur when breastfeeding, especially if you cut back all of a sudden.
