I'm considering baby wearing with this next baby (due in Nov) any words of advice or suggestions?

I'll be honest, one of the main reasons I'm doing it is to follow the LAM style of birth control since it's more effective than everything else (next to IUD's). So even though I'm looking forward to it a little, I'm kind of apprehensive because I never thought I'd be the type to baby wear and do all those things. So I need some uplifting.

  • Is this your first baby? I have not researched the LAM method thoroughly, but I it would not have worked for me because I got my period back right away...at six weeks. My babies were fed every two hours for the first six months and I still got a period. I am just saying that even the best laid plans sometimes go awry and that you need to make sure that you really would be happy if you got pregnant again.
    It doesn't seem that you are completely sold on the idea, so why are you doing it?
