    Default If you fell pregnant whe breast feeding.......

    How often were you feeding when you conceived?

    We are going to ttc soon & ds is still feeding, generally 3 times a day (2 if I'm working). I'm worried that still feeding will make it difficult to conceive

    I was still feeding 3-4 times a day at 12 months old when I fell pregnant. He was sleeping 12 hours at night though.

    2-4 times in the day and maybe 3 at night, sometimes more. My cycle was really irregular so I used an ovulation test and conceived my second a week before my first son's first birthday

    I fell pregnant when DD was 18 months, at the beginning of that cycle I cut out about 3 or 4 feeds and kept up 2. I think it was the sudden decrease in feeding that triggered ovulation.

    15 months old and feeding 3-8 times in a 24 hour period. I had AF back regularly though since he was 3 months old and it took us 8 months of ttc

    4-5 times in 24hrs. DD was 13mths old. I only found out at 10wks when I couldnt work out why my jeans wouldnt fit anymore and Iwas cranky for no reason.
