I need as much advise as I can get about conceiving while breastfeeding. I just had my first period after baby (11 months) and am hoping to conceive #2 soon. However I'm worried since baby gril has upped her nursing because she's teething that my cycles won't keep coming. I've always nursed on demand and want to continue to do so as much as possible. Other than the last two days dd had been going 5 hours mid day without nursing. So we have been moving some nursing sessions farther apart. Is there anything else that I can be doing? I want baby #2 so badly but I don't want to take away from my daughter in any way.
Is anyone else in the same situation?

Is your baby over 6 months?
Are you or have you added any foods or formula besides breast-milk to you baby?
Are you offering your baby a pacifier?
Have you started your cycle?
If you have answered YES to ANY of those questions, you have a much higher chance to become pregnant.
And I'm not sure why Kate is recommending you meds.
