Suppressing : Suppressing menstruation during breast-feeding is called lactational amenorrhea. Studies have shown that lactational amenorrhea for prevention of pregnancy works best when there is unrestricted breastfeeding without regard to schedules, resulting in six to eight breastfeedings a day will suppress ovulation. In addition, allowing your baby to feed at night takes advantage of the peak of the milk-making hormones that suppress ovulation, which are highest between 1 A.M. And 6 A.M. Nighttime nursing is important to the suppression of fertility. Avoid using supplemental bottles and pacifiers - all of baby's sucking should be at the breast, for comfort as well as food. Delay the introduction of solid foods until age six months or later. Solids should provide additional nutrition, not substitute for breast feedings. If you have had your period, be aware that you can become pregnant and that at this point, you should use some form of birth control if you want to avoid becoming pregnant. ...Read more
I am breastfeeding and trying to get pregnant but do not have a period yet..is there anything i can do to help fertility or get pregnant sooner?
Not advisable to do : Breastfeeding causes something called Lactational Amenorrhoea. It is not advisable to take any medications for fertility at this point. It is safer to wean off a baby after breastfeeding for at least 12 months, to help the menses to resume, although they may be anovulatory ( no ova )for the first few months. Generally it is safer to space the children by at least 2 years in between. ...Read more
