IUDs (both copper and hormonal) are safe to use while breastfeeding, and they're fairly foolproof.

NFP/FAM. Nor homones, implants or devices. Biological breastfeeding; on demand throughout the day snd night, preferably co-sleeping.

The mini pill. But it's a PITA - it must be taken the same time every day.

I've also used a diaphragm (sp) and spermicide with success (you have to be fitted for one and OB has to give you a tutorial on how to put it in)

Outside of that though- we didn't care if I got pregnant. We wanted a big family. Birth control was only used in between miscarriages because I was ordered by the Dr to not get pregnant for 2 -3 cycles between each loss.

This. This is how I got pregnant! NFP and charting is the bomb. It's how I got pregnant, it's how I knew I was pregnant, it's even how I knew I was going to miscarry.

Quoting MusherMaggie: NFP/FAM. Nor homones, implants or devices. Biological breastfeeding; on demand throughout the day snd night, preferably co-sleeping.

I used an IUD before and have my tubes tied now that I'm done having kids.

Mini pill or paraguard. Also breastfeeding in itself is a form
