Hi! I'm not a mother yet, so I can't help you with your situation, but I wanted to say welcome to the board! I'm Kimberly (23) and my s/o is Stephen (25). Hopefully I'll get become a mother in 2010...still working on convincing Stephen though. I'm sure you'll love the board, the ladies are a great bunch and very supportive. :-)

Hi there!


I'm Cassie (30) and DH (33) and I are WTT for our first child next spring. I am a fellow Canadian, based in Ontario:).


That is a difficult question,

Thank you both for welcoming me so soon. I think this will be a great place to stay while my body is in limbo.

Hi,

Sorry I can't help either. I'll be trying for my first, so no experience there. I did a search and came up with a couple articles, I hope they help:

http://parenting.ivillage.com/baby/bbreastfeed/0,,40r8,00.html

BTW, I'm Ann (22 next week) and BF is 27. I'm Jamaican and I'll be TTC in January 2009.

Hi,


I used to live in Sioux Lookout, so just a hop, skip and jump from where you are.

Hey There!

I don't have any kids but I'm very interested in breastfeeding, so I might actually have some suggestions for you.

The number one thing to try is that if your son is still nursing at night, trying to cut down his nighttime nursings if you can. If you are able to go more than six hours at night or more than four hours during the day without nursing, your period would be likely to return pretty quickly.

Since he is under one year, I wouldn't try more than that. If AF doesn't come back at that point, you will prob just have to wait until he is old enough that you really want to start pushing solids and cutting back to nursing just a couple times a day--although if you got PG quickly and you wanted to try tandem, he would probably start nursing a lot again after the baby was born and/or when your colostrum comes in.

HTH! And we're very glad to have you in the meantime!
