  • Didn't happen to me, but our old neighbor got pregnant when baby was about 3 or 4 weeks old, and I know other people who got pregnant within 2-3 months after baby was born. Breastfeeding is NOT birth control and I love that my hospital is so adamant about preaching that fact!

  • 12 months, but I don't think I was full time breastfeeding by then, and I miscarried. I don't use any birthcontrol, just breastfeed, and my 3 kids are all 2 years and 1-2 months apart. My youngest is 13 1/2 months old and I just got my period back about 2 weeks ago.

  • Hasn't happened to me but I have read about it happening. Just look at that lady on 19 kids and counting... you know she had to have those fairly back to back

  • I was 100 percent breastfeeding baby #2 and on BC pills when I got pregnant with baby# 3 . Baby # 2 was exactly 6 months old.
