Getting pregnant breastfeeding

Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant breastfeeding


Avatar f tn Its going to take longer if you aren't ovulating regularly. Thing that will help are to start tracking your cycles, track your temp, take ovulation predictor tests, and I hate to say it but decreasing how much you are breast feeding will help your cycle to become more regular which will make it easier to predict ovulation and therefore get pregnant.
Avatar f tn Me and my partner want to have a brother or sister for her but my periods haven't started yet so I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice or stories to tell if they have been in a similar situation to mine or has anyone gotten pregnant while breastfeeding and had no period. I love breastfeeding my little girl and want to continue till shes 1.

8216409 tn?1405758033 I plan on breastfeeding. My dr. Told me I'm gonna need help, and to get nipple shields. Has anyone used them before? Does it make it less painful? It is easy to use?
Avatar f tn It also helps your uterus contract after delivery, lessen your bleeding time, and can delay the return of your menstrual cycle (though you can still be VERY fertile - don't believe the old stories that you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding). It helps to regulate your hormones and cam decrease the likelihood of postpartum depression. Breastfeeding is the best choice you can make for yourself and your baby.

Avatar f tn You actually need more calories when breastfeeding then you do when you're pregnant.
Avatar f tn I will be breastfeeding. I made it to six months with my first because then I found out I was pregnant again and dried up. With my second I made it to 9 months and then dried up because I found out I was pregnant with my third. I am hoping to make it to 2-3 years old.
Avatar f tn The most important thing for successful b/feeding is getting baby latched on correctly, breastfeeding as often as baby wants ( demand feeding) and drinking plenty of water
12699098 tn?1427520040 So my baby is 2 weeks old I've been just breastfeeding him but I don't think he's getting full because he cries and wants to be fed all day. I really don't want to formula feed him but I just wonder if that will make him full. He was 6.7 when he was born and now he's 7.3 so I feel like he's eating a lot maybe its just comfort sucking . idk I'm just going crazy because he literally doesn't let me do anything because he wants to eat allll the time.
Avatar f tn How is breastfeeding for some women who are nursing... I want to breastfeed but is there a such thing as breastfeeding and using formula??? Guess being consistent is better???
