Re: NFP while EBF??

Book Recommendation: 'Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing' by Sheila Matgen Kippley. I was just going to start a new thread recommending this book and then I saw your post. The book explains how you can use EBF as a very effective form of birth control before your fertility returns and then how you can transition into NFP. I know I'm not exactly answering your question, but I thought this might be helpful. By following this book's guidelines, fertility can be suppressed for 14.5 months, on average (but ranging from 9 - 30+ months). No temp taking, no mucus checking, no charting, etc. just lots of nursing. I had my first baby 9 months ago and I still haven't had a PPAF.
