Turia Pitt is new to breastfeeding, but her baby is too 💜💜 ...
There’s a couple of major perks to breastfeeding 🤱😂😂😂. I actually found breastfeeding really hard at the beginning. But then I realised it was the first time I’d ever breastfeed and it was Hakavai’s first time too and the first time you try anything new you’re not going to be an expert at it! We’re not experts (yet) but we’re definitely getting the hang of it.
Are you breastfeeding, but really want to conceive again really soon?
Have you got a period yet? Although you will ovulate once before you get your first period, your period is a good indication of your fertility.
My husband and I wanted our first 2 close together. I didn’t get a period until our son was 18 months old, and then it took a further 9 months to conceive. My cycle varied greatly, and ranged from 21 to 45 days during those 9 months.
I was encouraged to wean, so I could conceive sooner. We were forced to weigh up whether breastfeeding or having our first two kids close in age was more important. We ultimately decided breastfeeding to term was more important than a small age gap.
Im so glad we reconsidered the relevance of a small age gap, because my two beautiful kids are 3 years apart, and have a wonderful bond (thank you tandem breastfeeding). Here’s a snap I risked turning lights on for, when they were snuggled up together on some mattresses on the lounge room floor 😍😍 ...
