In light of recent discussions about LAM and the return of fertility, thought I'd share this for anyone who might like some further reading on it all.

So if your baby starts STTN for over 7 hours before 6 months old LAM is no longer effective?

STTN over 7 hours doesn't automatically bump you out of LAM, only 3 conditions are required for that. But it may cause you to experience spotting or bleeding before 6 months is up, and that will bump you out of LAM.

For me when they regularly sleep through the night, that's when AF returns, of course I never meet the conditions for LAM because something always goes wrong.
