I'm Catholic so my hubby and I don't believe in using bc. We use natural family planning. But now that I'm breastfeeding exclusively and not having a period I'm not sure how to do this. Does anyone know anything about natural family planning while breastfeeding?
Oh and please no judgement on the no BC thing. I don't judge others that use it...it just is our PERSONAL choice not to. SO if you want to reply just to argue that, don't waste your time! Thanks ladies.

How old is the baby? Its unlikely for you to get pregnant while exclusively BF. I don't really know what natural planning is..is it rhythm?

I know a lot of people are going to say BF doesn't prevent pregnancy...but it is not likely if your exclusive BF and its only been 12 weeks. Talk to your ob. If you definitely don't want to get pregnant than you know the way to be sure.
