I had heard that to be pregnant during bf is not that easy. Is it true that the chances of being pregnant will be reduced?
My hubby and I are trying for a 2nd child but not sure if bf will affect.
I want to know this too. Same as you, want to have my #2 baby after my #1 baby turns to 5-6mths old. My #1 baby is 12 wks now. My menses have not come yet, still bf-ing my baby. Please share your experience, anyone
My boy is 8 mths now. And my hubby n I are trying to have a 2nd one now but I am still bf.. So chances is low but still have chance right? Or do I need to stop bf totally?
Yes already have the menses already. So if menses is regular meaning will have equal chances of getting pregnant??
It depends...but generally if you are breastfeeding exclusively before introducing any form of solids and you have not gotten your period, the chances of getting pregnant are pretty slim.
Once baby starts solids, chances of getting pregnant increases as baby may be taking less breastfeeds...unless you are feeding very frequently through the day and night then it could still be difficult to get pregnant.
If your baby weans of night feeds, chances increases some more. This is what I did to get pregnant again as after 12 months I still did not get my period, so after weaning off the 1 night feed I got it back and got pregnant 3 months later. Once I got my period it was regular but it really depends on individuals.
It's all individual though as every body is different...I've heard of women getting pregnant 2 months after giving birth... and some cases some did not even realise they were pregnant till 5 or 6 months into pregnancy because they ovulated while breastfeeding.
currently i express out milk 3 times a day.. next month going to express only 2 times a day. hope i will get pregnant soon praying hard.
