I'm hoping to begin trying for baby #2 once my DD reaches 14 months (she's 9 months old now). I've wondered if I will need to wean her completely before my fertility returns. I did start getting my periods again at 7 months postpartum but they have been somewhat irregular (4 wk cycle, 5 week cycle, 3 wk cycle). I know I have some time to decide what to do but I am concerned about weaning her before she is ready. She is very attached to breastfeeding and recently has refused a bottle. I'd rather continue nursing her at least at night (I nurse her down to sleep) but I don't know if that will prevent conception of baby #2. Do you know of any good resources that discuss fertility and breastfeeding? Is there a way for me to determine if my fertility has completely returned before I attempt to wean? I'm hoping that I can continue with the breastfeeding and achieve conception at the same time.
