    We conceived DS2 while I was still breast feeding DS1 (he was 8 months old at the time). I had only had AF return that cycle and I then fell pregnant. Was still breast feeding 3-4 times a day (sometimes more). Good luck!

    Twice. First time my son was only bf twice a day and it took a year for my cycles to regulate enough to get pregnant. My milk dried up pretty quick and quit bf at 9 wks pregnant.
    Second time my son was feeding 3/4 times a day I think and it was an accident pregnancy. It ended in mmc, we were still feeding once a day when I found I'd lost the pregnancy. I didn't feel very healthy at the time.
    This pregnancy I actually weaned my son the week I ovulated.
    If your af is regular it's a pretty good sign you're fertile

    Yes, I have done so twice. The first time was when my son was 14 months old, be was still nursing very regularly, but my periods had been back since 4 months post partum. It took 3 months of trying to get pregnant, the second time I was actually tandem nursing, a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old. We weren't trying, was an 'oops!'

    Yes, if your cycle is regular, the chances are good! All the best

    Yes, DD1 was 13 months old and I'd had 3 periods. She was feeding many times a day and at least once overnight.
