I'm new to this board, although not new to iVillage. I had a question about breastfeeding and fertility and this seemed like the perfect board to post it on!
I'm still feeding Taia exclusively breastmilk, EBM during the day because I work and breastfeeding at night and on weekends. My goal is to give her only breastmilk until she's a year old. I'm just wondering how this will affect my fertility.
DH and I definitely want to have at least 1 more child and since I just turned 38, we need to start sooner rather than later. However, I haven't gotten my period yet, so am probably not fertile at this point. I'm just wondering how much I'd have to wean Taia off of the breast before I will get my period? I'm sure this varies from person to person, but I'd like to have a general idea if anyone knows.
Regardless of the answer, I'm going to try to breastfeed Taia until at least the 1 year mark, unless she self weans before then, but I doubt she will. She's really not interested in solid foods yet. But I was just interested if anyone knew about when your fertility returns?
