I'm currently breastfeeding my 9.5 month old DD. She nurses quite frequently around the clock and thus I have not yet seen the return of fertility.
Our first 2 children (both girls) are 22 months apart and we really like that age gap. We'd like to use the Shettles method to try for a boy who will be (ideally) somewhere around 22 months younger than my current nursling.
Right now my plan is to start gently night-weaning Poppy to encourage the return of fertility. She'll happily go all night without milk when I'm away from her, but of course when I'm right next to her in bed, she wants my breast. Any advice on that aspect?
Secondly, I want to start charting ASAP. But, from what I understand, charting right now would be inaccurate because of my night-waking to nurse, correct? So, once I am consistently sleeping through the night, how many months in a row will I chart before I'll start to see a pattern?
Thirdly, for those who have successfully used the Shettles method to conceive a boy, how close to ovulation did you wait to DTD?
Thank so much for bearing with me and my many questions (some of which are off topic, sorry!).
