In brief: Yes, you can

You can use hormone methods like the progestin-only mini-pill or the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud.
You can also use low-dose estrogen-progesterone birth control pills 4-6 weeks after delivery. Another option: barrier methods like the condom, diaphragm and cervical cap. Hope this helps!

In brief: Yes

It will not harm the baby- and it is a good way to avoid getting another child before you are ready.
