I have a 14 month old. She is breastfeeding about 5x/day right now.
Up until about 2 weeks ago she was feeding about 7x/d.
I know that decreasing BFing is the best chance for encouraging the return of AF, so I am trying that.
I am hoping to get AF to return, as we would like our children to be a couple of years apart, and therefore we are hoping to get pregnant soon.
I found it convenient to decrease her nursing sessions a couple of weeks ago because I was away from home for a few days and my supply did decrease even though I was pumping. My LO doesn't seem to mind that she is feeding less often - she is busy with food, her sippy cup and playing with her toys
I haven't seen any change in cervical mucous over the past couple of weeks even though she has been nursing less, so I am assuming I have not ovulated and therefore am not expecting AF to be showing up any time soon.
I am really hoping to avoid weaning completely.
Just hoping someone has some advice on ways to get AF to return, or at least can tell me when I might be able to expect AF to come back on its own.
Also, if I cut out another feeding I feel that either her second night feed or her lunch feed are my best options. I am leaning toward the night feed, which would keep all of her remaining feedings about 6 hours apart. Thoughts??
Thanks in advance
