The lack of periods from breastfeeding
, called "lactational amenorrhea
" works as birth control
only if the baby is less than 6 months old, you are exclusively breastfeeding, getting stimulation on your breasts every 2-3 during the day and every 4 hours at night and if you haven't already had a period.
This form of birth control is good if all the conditions are met, but still isn't perfect.
