*** LAM is not 100% effective for every woman, so it is really important to know your body. I know a woman that is religious (so doesn't use any form of bc), breastfeeds 100%, no paci's etc., and all of her 8 children were conceived by the time she was 3 months pp. I strongly advise every woman to not use LAM alone. Use LAM while monitoring for other signs of fertility.

Re: Charting while BFing w/ no PP AF?

and this is why DH and I are just not DTD much safer that way, I can't risk my supply for at least the next 8 months!!

DD is still nursing before and after every nap so every 2-3 hours during the day but sleeps approx 11 hours at night so I am just expecting AF to show up... so far she hasn't though!
