It's probably still possible if there was something wrong with the condom... but also probably pretty rare.

And bfing doesn't ALWAYS stop ovulation. There are lots of moms from my due date group that were BF and got their periods back right away unfortunately. Do you know if you have been ovulating?

Any time you have sex there is ALWAYS a chance you can get pregnant, unless you have no uterus.

I'd buy a 3 pack and test every 3 days with first morning urine if you're worried

If you have been having periods since having the baby, then bfing isn't suppressing your ovulation.

If you have not had any periods, breastfeeding still does not guarantee that you are not ovulating or going to ovulate.

Any change in breastfeeding(like breastfeeding less frequently)can cause you to start ovulating.

Please do not use breastfeeding as a form of BC, period.

Condoms can break(and/or have leaks). If you have had a oops with one, you could be preggers.

its possible, but if you used a condom,its not likely.
