Its not that you "can't," its just much harder to read your fertile symptoms while BF. Are your cycles regulated now? I just had my first PPAF last month, so I couldn't even start charting yet IYKWIM. Also, for sympto-thermal method you need to check your temp in the morning when you first wake up, at the same time every day, preferably after being asleep for 5 hrs strait. My DD nurses the most in the early morning hours, so I assume that would throw it off.

Like PP, I can't emphasize stronger to either take a class with a good instructor or read TCOYF and use the most strict rules. Check out too, they have a forums for TTA that were helpful for feedback, and maybe some that used it reliably while still nursing at night.
