Be very careful if considering hormonal birth control while bfing. Read these facts:
Yikes! I just read the link on Kellymom - thanks for the post - I was going to start the "mini-pill" this weekend! (Now...maybe not!)

I have a non-hormonal IUD. It was inserted at 7 weeks postpartum and ds is now 13 mo. No problems so far. I'm loving it. My periods were VERY heavy for about 8 months but it seems to be better now.
