Hi, I was wondering if any of you know how 'safe' it is to use BFing as a birth control method? I am anti birth control pills (miscarriage because of them - then later found out what they really do) and every other method I just don't like so much. This is my third baby, (4.5 months) & the only one that has nursed for longer than 2 weeks (mom/baby issues - lack of support).
Anyways, how effective is nursing for a method? I nurse on demand, no pacifiers. She has been sleeping longer stretches during the night but haven't started my period yet.
