I have 2 questions for you, one's on topic and one is off topic.

I'm going to have this new baby when LJ is almost 15 months old. I had told myself I wanted to bf him til 18 months, I haven't decided though for sure if I still want to do that since when I told myself that I had said no way no how was I willing to even consider having a baby for a while, cuz I was pregnant then and I don't do well at being pregnant. Anyway, if I DO continue how does nursing two kids effect fertility? Does that make the breastfeeding 6 months of infertility null and void?

And my other question is if I PM you the e-mail of a friend who I think you might be able to help out a little bit, would you be willing to talk to her?

Thx.

There is no proof that tandem nursing offers *extra* infertility. As long as your newborn is getting all meals at the breast (no pumping, supplementing,etc) and you have no spotting/bleeding past 56 days PP - you can still count on LAM for the first 6 months if you are tandem nursing.

Definitely. I'll PM you my email and you can just let her email me with her questions.

OK, good to know, still trying to decide what to do, but I thought I might try to actually follow LAM until I go back to work (which will before the baby is 6 months) but hopefully when he is about like 4 or 5 months old...lots of details to work out before then.
