I've had several friends who used IUDs, hormonal or non-hormonal, after they had their babies. They like them.
That being said, I got pregnant with twins while using the non-hormonal IUD. It was only two years old, and I had just had it checked by my OB a month before I got pregnant. Soooo....IUDs aren't so trustworthy in my case.
Is your cycle very regular? If you can usually tell when you're ovulating, especially if you've charted (using Natural Family Planning) in the past, then I would suggest getting the IUD and using condoms during your fertile week.
As for dh and I, we plan on charting (NFP) and using condoms. My mother had early onset breast cancer, so I feel hormonal birth control would be unsafe for me.
