  • I have heard it's really easy. Look at the celbs who do it. Usually the doc says it so easy that most tell you not to for 3 months after the last baby.

  • Yes. Two of my children are 10 months apart. If you are breastfeeding then no, you will usually have a natural barrier against pregnancy until your period returns.

  • i think it depends on you. i know women who got pregnant practically the next month. i also know women who tried for years to have a second baby.

  • It depends on your own body... some women get pregnant within the first 2-3 months after having a baby, whether they're BF or not. Some women take longer to get their hormones and stuff back to normal.

  • LOL! Its pretty easy. I had just stopped bfing my son when he was a month old and within a month I was pregnant again. My kids are 11 months apart to the day. I strongly recommend that you DON'T get pregnant again so soon. Most docs will tell you that you need at least a year in between pregnancies to let your body heal!
