Ovulation happens: Women who are breastfeeding can ovulate, but it is not predictable when the ovulation will start happening. It's just the way nature is.

Yes: Breast-feeding does prevent ovulation, and if you do not ovulate, you can't get pregnant...But not always! the issue with breast-feeding is the absence of menstrual periods, which can help women plot their cycles for birth control. Yep, one egg can sneak through, and bam -- lots of plans have to be reworked! contraception is a must during nursing: condoms, iuds, or other hormonal choices.
