Ovulating While Breastfeeding

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi!  I'm new here but this seemed like the right place to ask/ vent about NOT ovulating?  I breastfeed my almost 10-month-old son usually as often as he'd like.  The night time thing was killing me (every 90 minutes?!  There's NO WAY he was really hungry!) so we just agreed to let him cry it out one night and see how it went.  It went SWIMMINGLY thank goodness and now he sleeps from 8 pm to 3 am before waking up hungry.  This is all to say that he often goes 7 or 8 hours without nursing at night.  During the day, I'm trying to get him accustomed to solids as his primary source of edibles, so I nurse him... probably 6 times all day?  I'm REALLY hoping to start trying to conceive again in January, and I'm wondering if anybody has any advice on jump-starting my cycles?  Thanks in advance!  (Also thought I could take this opportunity to share the link to my own homebirth stories, if you're interested:  http://www.quackbaby.com/7/post/2012/07/the-home-birth-squared.html)

I would suggest you join in on the TTC while Breastfeeding November thread.  All the mamas there are in the same boat.  Good luck!

Ha!  I was wondering why nobody was responding!  Turns out I'm totally out of the loop!  Thanks!

I'm sorry no one responded earlier.  I'm sure you nursing mamas are busy!

I don‘t know much myself but i guess if your periods are back, it‘s easier to follow.
