So...It's my understanding that the mini pill is recommended as a contraceptive while breastfeeding because the combination pill can inhibit milk production. DS2 is 15 months old and only has about two or three feeds a day at the moment (mostly for comfort), so I'm wondering if I can start taking the combination pill. The mini pill doesn't work for me and I am averse to internal contraceptive solutions.
I have read on Kellymom etc that the latter *can* be used when baby is over six months and also on solids...yet lots of people I talk to are telling me that you CAN'T take it at all
I have a GP appointment tomorrow but thought I would ask for advice on here too. I might ring ABA as well...some personal opinions/advice/experiences would be great though
