It was suggested to me recently that in some cases (though possibly rare ones) women may have trouble holding a pregnancy while still nursing another child because of possible low hormone levels etc... (Assuming of course that ovulation has returned as mine did after my DS was 9 months old)
Though this is obviously not the norm (as millions of mothers nurse multiple children across the globe) I was wondering if anyone has seen evidence of this.
Theoretically, once a mother has weaned a first child, she should then be able to maintain another pregnancy...IF the breastfeeding is effecting it at all.
