  • I got pregnant when my second baby was nine months. He was nursing probably 8-10 a day.

    I am one of those "lucky" women who got my period back at six weeks. That was crappy!

  • I've known women to get pregnant at six weeks postpartum, with baby nursing many times a day. I've known women to get pregnant at a year when baby nurses only once a day.

    If your body is ready for another pregnancy, it will happen.

  • my son was 10 months and nursing about 6-8 times a day and once at night. I was the one who didn't have a period until 8 months post partum and ONE time, we had unprotected! Oh well, I am so greatful for my daughter. I also stopped nurisng after I found out that I was pregnant again.
