Re: BF for birth control??

When BFing, I personally don't get AF until they fully wean (14-18 months), but then again when DS1 weaned at 14 months...AF never returned as DS2 was my first egg post BF.

If you have any more words of wisdom on the subject please share!
If I started too much on this subject, I would take up more room than allowed. It's pretty easy to find info via google. Just make sure you choose a reputable site. Im not sure what interests you most but you could start with pthalates and fertility and go from there. I have rid our house of chemicals as much as possible and I still got AF at 4-1/2 mo. pp. Though all those chemicals are built up in our bodies so a detox from time to time is needed really. The stanley burroughs master cleanse is a good one (but NOT if preg or nursing). Im gonna get a raindrop massage soon and pump and dump once after because it is good for detox too.
Pthalates is known to feminise males so seems like that could be a big cause of male factor infertility cases. Pthalates are in detergent soaps cologne bodywash shaving cream dish soap, etc--almost everything with fragrance in it. So seems like that could be one of the reasons some females get pp af sooner than they used to. (Estrogenic effects) Ok. I gotta stop now.

Breastfeeding as birth control can be very effective if it's done correctly. Its called ecological breastfeeding. Though what most people don't know or forget is that the return of fertility in mothers using Eco nursing perfectly varies. ON AVERAGE it's something like 6 months. But the range is 2-18 months. For that reason, I believe that it's irresponsible to rely on Eco nursing as your sole method of bc and that you should at least chart bbts. Since accurate bbts is the only way to confirm ovulation short of daily ultrasounds.
