Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

I haven't had AF since having Daisy, and we aren't using any contraception. Is it likely that I could conceive?

I wouldnt rely on it as a form of contraception hun - although providing you are exclusively BF and she still feeds through the night - you are *unlikely* to conceive (take note of above posts lol!)

My AF hasnt returned yet - although something going on every few weeks Razz
We use condoms as another pregnancy would completly cripple us - if its not the end of the world for you if it was to happen - then carry on as you are :aww:
