  • Ecological breast feeding is a method of breast feeding infants under 6 months old that is 98% effective as contraception. It has stirict rules to follow for it to work.

    After 6 months, breast feeding is not reliable birth control. Plenty of women get pregnant that way.

  • I got pregnant when she was around 14 months old. I breastfed her until a few months after my son was born.

  • I got pg while nursing our son. He was 6 mos old when I got pg. I nursed all through my pg, and was willing to tandem nurse, but he weaned himself the month our dd was born (a few weeks before she was born).

  • Two times in a row, I got pregnant while breastfeeding. Both babies were 7 months when I conceived. I continue to breastfed, but there is an extreme dwindle in supply of milk.
