    I was, it took a long time, my cycles were never regular. It wasn't until my big boy was 2.5 years old that we conceived. It's possible. Though I know lots of people with a smaller gap while breastfeeding and tandem feeding, but it was pretty long and frustration for us.

    During the time when I was breast feeding my DS, I fell pregnant four times. It didn't happen until while he was exclusively breastfed. The first three pregnancies led to miscarriages (the doctors insisted bread feeding would not be to blame). This pregnancy I BF until about 12 weeks, when I finally managed to wean my stubborn little man...it was not much fun with tender pregnant boobs.

    Yes, it is possible as long as you are fertile, but i have to warn you that it will be harm to your body a little bit, you'd better wait a couple of weeks to get pregnant again.

    I am preg with #3 now . My dd is 12 months old and still bf on demand (at least 7 feeds in a 24 hour period)

    But AF returned when she was 10 weeks old (it returned at the same time with D's also dispute him being bf also !)


    I do know several whom have fallen preg without having had a period while bf too

    Yep I'm in exactly the same boat...DD is 11 months and we'd love to conceive #2, but no AF yet. Currently feeding DD 4-5 times during the day, but haven't been feeding her overnight since about 6 months...but still no AF... No idea what my body's doing. Ideally I'd like to keep feeding DD until she weans herself...but we also don't want to wait too long for bubba #2...

    We want to try again in July when dd1 will be 7 months. We need to use ivf, I know I'm going to struggle big time to wean her because I don't want to.

    I just wanted to pop in and wish you ladies luck and ! I was lucky in that AF returned when DS was just shy of six months old (was still breastfeeding on demand though). By the end of last year my cycles were regular - between 26 and 29 days - and we decided to see what would happen - BFP first try which was a bit of a shock! At that stage DS was still having three feeds a day.

    Hope your TTC journeys are short!

    This is not true - it's perfectly safe to breastfeed whilst TTC, during pregnancy and beyond!

Glad to find you ladies, maybe we can keep this thread and offer some support. Perhaps we'll be living vicariously and with hope through you soon becandabub! Are we all TTC #2??? How funny.
    I hope so!! Though what would be much better is if you weren't living vicariously through me but UTD with me ha ha!! DD feeds on demand - through the day that tends to be 4 time, maybe with a little sip here & there esp on hot days. Overnight can be anything from 1-2 feeds up to 8 times. We co-sleep so she kinda helps herself so most nights I can't actually remember how many boobies she's had.

    My cycles seem to be back to pre-pregnancy - 28-30 days long. I went completely feral the day before AF this month though which has never happened before! Hopefully we'll get a BFP soon if that's what every AF is going to bring on!!
