I am breastfeeding my daughter and me and my husband are trying have another baby. Do anyone have any idea what we can do to make my body more fertile? When concieving normally is there a certain time of the day when I may be more likely to concieve? I am starting my baby on baby food so she will be breastfed less. Would my period more than likely come back. I did not get pregnant this time until 3 months after I stopped breastfeeding completely and had one period.Answer Question

Absoluteself...that is INCORRECT!!!! It's perfectly safe to TTC while breastfeeding.
I will tell you that getting your cycle back can be hard. I exclusively breastfed for 6 months, then introduced solids and I'm still breastfeeding. I didn't have my first post partum period until my son was 16 months old.
I just ovulated for the 2nd time yesterday since having my son 17 months ago.
You can try taking Vitex to encourage it back and night wean if you haven't already. Just BE CAREFUL about weaning to much. I wasn't willing to wean so that contributed to how long it took to get my cycle back.
