TTC while breastfeeding = twins?

okay, ive been told, and read little snipets of every article i could find about conceiving twins while nursing. anyone have some more information other than what i found on ASK.com or like sites. some actual statistics/more detailed articles.

i believe it to be possible , when i was still nursing Gage we conceived Declan and my first u/s was 2 lil beans ( very early u.s ) but one stopped growing and was gone by about 11 weeks. ( vanishing twin syndrome ) but just curious..


so has this happened to you \? conceived twins while breastfeeding?

I found this interesting article on twinning a while back
http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/chanc...iet-10638.html
According to it, chance of having twins is increased by nine if the mother is bfing at time of conception!

i didnt see the reference to bf'ing increasing the chance of multiples...just if you eat meat/drink dairy...which is actually kind of scary to think about the hormones used in the meat industry affecting a woman's fertility...even if it is to get twice the cute...

i love the idea of twins, but they do carry extra risks/extra taxing on a momma's body, etc...
