Use condoms?

Today for the first time in my life I'm going to go buy a pack of condoms! Was on the depo provera shot from age 16-21 then got married and immediately started trying for a baby. 6 months later we conceived our amazing daughter who is now 1 month old. Yesterday was the first time we had sex post partum, and even though hubby pulled out I'm terrified somehow his precum knocked me up again lol. Def not ready for another baby, we plan to wait 4 or 5 years before trying again. I'm not on any birth control and I don't plan to be as I'm breastfeeding and don't want the baby exposed to any hormones. So condoms it is! Anyone have any suggestions as to what kind to buy? I'm totally clueless!

Try VCF (vaginal contriceptive film).. they are a small film that you insert no less than 15 minutes and no more than 3 hours before sex. They contain nonoxinol-9, a spermicide, and they disolve due to your body heat. My hubby and I used them for a while before I went back on the pill and he got snipped. Can you tell I'm not an advocate for condoms? Lol

15 minutes before we get going is kinda hard to plan lol, with the new baby it's like we only have 15 minutes total haha. But why are you against condoms?

we have the same problem.. I'm breastfeeding and don't like pills, I know there are some mini pills you can use when you are breasfeeding, but I always forgot take them ... my OB told me breastfeeding is a natural birth control method, anyway I think we will be using condoms
