I remember reading and hearing from multiple sources that if you go longer than 4 hours between feeds (or pumps, or some sort of breast stimulation), then yes, it IS POSSIBLE to ovulate. So 12 hours of no feeds sounds like a pretty big possibility. And what you are describing would make me think the exact same thing you are thinking...so be careful, if you're not willing to another baby less than a year after this one!

Yes, I think according to LAM (Lactational Amenorrhea Method of birth control) baby must be breastfed exclusively with no more than 3 hours during the day or 6 hours at night between feedings. All suckling must be from the breast, no pacifiers, and baby must be under 6 months old for it to be a reliable method of birth control. So be careful

Well damn! I just came by to post that I might be getting my period! Some pink tinged CM this morning! DS is EBF, but there have been times I've gone more than 3 hrs since returning to work. And there have probably been times that have gone that long at night without me realizing it. That's a bit of info I never came across

I have had pink-tinged CM off and on for the last couple of weeks, but no AF.

Crap, I just might be borderline with the daytime nursing. I don't really keep track, but it seems like he's spaced out his feedings.

So interesting, I have really been wondering about this a lot too lately. (TMI ALERT Lots of wet CM and wondering what the heck?

Ugh, I had what seemed like stretchy ewcm last week, too, and I'm about it! I'm blaming it on my one night a week job, just three hrs at work but probably bordering on or possibly just past four hours from when I nurse him before work to when I get home and nurse/pump. Grrr . . .

Otherwise, this boy definitely suckles at least every 3 hrs. We wakes me up about 3-4x a night, so I'm not worried about that.
