Just have sex. Lol. Breast feeding doesn't prevent you from getting pregnant.

And when we got pregnant the first time.. It was after we got married and we got pregnant like two months after being married so I know it's not hard for my body to get pregnant..

Oh ok! I was gonna say..LOL. Breast feeding does act as a birth control for some people, it must be that way with you! Idk what else you could do, I got pregnant again the first time we had sex after baby was born lmao. Granted it was 5mo PP and I was weaning from breast feeding. Hope it works for y'all!! Maybe try standing on your head when y'all are done ;) ( totally kidding )

Sex sex sex breast feeding shouldn't stop ya provided you've had a period before, although i got pregnant at 6 months pp so its possible just keep at it if thats truly what you want😊 it'll happen as fate works in crazy ways

I had a friend swear on everything that after two years of infertility she got pregnant by holding her legs in the air and her body slanted head down for fifteen minutes right after husband finished. Lol I don't know if it works. I always figured it was a fluke or a coincidence but she swears it works. So maybe try that?

How on earth do you have time to do it 3-4 times a week?! I am severely jealous lol. I have a 10 week old, granted it hasn't happened yet but i can't even think about it because I'm so busy! lol

LOL Alicia!! Well we just make time!! Having sex brings us close together and when we do go a week without doing it we both get so stressed! I can't remember the first time we did it after I had my Little one but it was probably around 10 weeks 😁😁 we just do it anytime our baby is asleep basically lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

That's what I did raven and it worked lol, we were married for almost a year and I wasn't getting pregnant then I decided on night after we did it to lay down with my butt and legs in the air and sure enough I got pregnant, don't know if it was coincidence or if it really was that but it dosnt hurt to try it ;)

Wendy, I'm just ready for some more babies! 😊😊 And breastfeeding may not affect anything for some people but it does for me and many others... It keeps most mothers from ovulating.

If you haven't had your period yet then you haven't ovulated yet, so there are no problems besides the fact that you can't get pregnant without ovulating... But you will ovulate about 2 weeks before you get your first period, so keep trying!! It will happen. Hopefully sooner rather than later! (I'm pretty sure this is correct; from what I understand anyways)

Kayla, well that's great, it's good to have at least one more so close. Mine are 14 months apart :) do you have a period app?

I think that's right too Alisha! And Wendy I don't have a period app.. I have no idea when I even had my last period! Lol and yes I kind of want to do pairs. Two close and a little break than two more close and so forth. 😊😊
