BC after baby?

any truth to the breastfeeding as birth control method? can you take hormonal birth control methods if you're bfeeding?

Re: BC after baby?

  • Well, my friend is about to give birth to her 3rd child under 3 years old, so I'm going to go with BF is not a reliable source of BC.

    I think you can take the mini-pill, but I had a Mirena and it was fabulous! 

  • I would definitely not rely on BF as a BC method.  My friend's brother is 10 mo. younger than her because that was the "method" her mom used.

    I used the mini-pill after DD#1 and a few months after DD#2.  I'm now using a Mirena IUD and am still BFing.

  • My OB was only comfortable recommending barrier methods (condoms) and the mini-pill.
