I searched and searched the archives and google but can't find an answer. I know this is a really specific question but hopefully someone can help.


I am 18 weeks pregnant and will be nursing only one side with this LO. I am just curious as to how it will effect my postpartum fertility. I know it can be different for everyone but is it reasonable for me to suspect my fertility will return sooner or will the amount of nursing, ie: on demand, effect fertility more than one side vs. both sides.

I would think that one side would affect fertility the same as two sides, the only thing that might make a difference is if that one side couldn't keep up with demand and they go to more solids sooner then otherwise. But even with one side I think it would be the amount of non-milk (solids/formula) that would affect fertility, not the number of sides. I hope that makes sense...
