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!

 ugh.. we went through this for a while... it suuuuuuuucks... we used just the basic trojan magnum .. no fancy stuff.. I was worried anything warming or sensation or whatever might burn since I was still sore/sensitive.

Get an IUD then you don't have to worry about it they only last 5 years anyway.

you can try the mini pill or the IUD without hormones.

We use Trojan as well... they do the job.. lol..  I must say, using condoms suck, and im wondering if i should just get back on birth control... I have a almost 5 yr old DD, and removed my Mirena 2 yrs ago, bc i wanted to try for another, but we changed our minds...

We do this. We strictly use condoms, ebf alone does NOT always prevent pg.i EXCLUSIVELY and on demand breastfed and we intentionally got pg more than once. The mini pill didn't agree with my body and killed my supply, also the more we researched different bc methods the more we're against them for me but we're still young and while we feel done don't want to do anything permanent so condoms it is. We've never had an oops they've worked great for us
