Question for you ladies with 2 or more
Did your fertility return sooner/later/about the same time after birth when breastfeeding?
Were your nursing, sleeping, weaning, baby wearing etc patterns the same?
With #1 I BF for 12 months and had to completely wean for O to find me at 13 months PP. DD had been sleeping through the night, in her own bed, 9 hours at night no BF from 10 weeks old, 12 hours at night not BF from 6 months old.
With #2, now 3 months old, she has been going 9 hours no BF at night since 8 weeks, she sleeps in her own bed and Im thinking of keeping her in the same routine as #1 and hopefully she will sleep 12 hours no feeding from 6 months. I am much more relaxed this time round though and hoping for a longer gap between pregnancy's. So I plan to feed her more during the weaning process and hopefully 12/18months + depending on how our BF relationship goes. I had a really traumatic pregnancy and birth with #2 and spend much of the day wearing or holding her. I think we are going to need much more bonding time.
