    Default Conflicted...HELP

    We want to have babies close together. I am currently nursing and have not gotten AF. Is there anyway that I can get AF without stopping nursing? Any suggestions on how to bring it on? I would really liketo be able to nurse at least morning, night and mid night snack feedings.

    Try night weaning. IME generally if you can go one bout a day where you arent' nursing for 8 hours you will get your period back.

    Way too lazy for formula

    Give it some time... if your baby is 6 months I would imagine that that you starting solids soon? That might be enough for you to get your cycle back early too!

    Thank you all for your replies. He has been sleeping through the night, which is awesome! I continue to BF, however I have taken out one feeding plus the night feeding and am supplementing with formula. He has started solids as well, fringers crossed I wont have to change anything else.
