  • Yes it is possible.

    When your exclusively breastfeeding without solids or formula than you have a good chance of suppressing ovulation for the first 6 months but it's not a guarentee which is why you should also chart using FAM (my personal favorite) or NFP to look for signs of ovulation.

    It's really quite simple and gives you so much freedom and so LITTLE worry! Get the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility and chart!
