    Well I didn't exactly try for it, but it happened to me. I never even got my period... but around the time my ds started sleeping through the night (8-12 weeks) I fell pregnant with dd.

    I continued to bf through my whole pregnancy (while also on a restricted diet for ds's allergies) and weaned ds 2 months before dd was born.

    I'm still breastfeeding DS and nearly 38 weeks with #2. We wanted a 2 yr gap between our babies so we just tried when DS was 14 months. I was still feeding him quite a lot during the day and still at night if he needed it. My AF had just returned but only the once then we were pregnant. Only 2 months of trying, 1st month no luck but we're successful the 2nd month.

    Are you going to wean Taiyed? Or tandem feed?

    I was still feeding loads when DD was 13 months and I fell pregnant. Including at least twice overnight. I'd had 3 periods and we were lucky enough to conceive our first month of trying she's 22 months now and DD2 is two weeks, feeding both but DD1 only feeds once a day if that!

    I've just cut him back to 1 feed a day, I'm happy to keep giving it to him if he keeps asking. Today he asked me twice so I just did it, I still think he's so little

    How are you going? Have you conceived? And are you still breastfeeding?
