I have a 5.5 month old who is BF- no solids and no formula.

Hi There,

There is a great thread below with TTC fact sheet... that could give you some places to start. What worked best for us was time... and being mindful of spacing some feedings. Things will certainly change with that no matter what once you start solids.

I started charting early on... mostly paying attention to CM. So I would start that for sure. In the Grad section lots of folks have written out what their TTC "cocktail" was... you might find that helpful as well!

Good luck!

Hi and welcome! The ladies here have loads of useful information. So much is recorded in the TTC fact sheet. For me AF did not come back until 16mos PP both times! yikes! but I wasnt able to strech out nursing sessions until a couple of months before that so I think you are way ahead as far as that goes. I had lots of symptoms of fertilty (CM and cramps, etc) for a few months before it actually came back. I took vitex, Bcomplex 100 and drink lots of red raspberry leaf tea. There are many other vitamins/supplements to try but I think some times it just takes some time for body to be ready. But if you are on the lookout you may catch the 1st egg! good luck and please stick around!
