Thought this was interesting! But don't worry - even though it says '100 mins' of nursing is the (probable) threshold of fertility returning (no chance for me yet then! Even just nursing night my daughter has prob about 3 or 4hrs worth on a good day) I have seen on forums plenty of nursing moms getting pregs despite frequent nursing babies!

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!

I'm sure I replied to this sooner but it obviously didn't take!

But yeah, its not a fits-everyone rule! I just wish there was a way of knowing what a woman's individual threshold is!
I do wonder if co-sleeping has an added effect? Not just cos of night nursing but the being close? Its said hormones react to newborns and your body heats and cools to match the babies needs and all these other very cool things so I don't see why some chemical/hormonal reaction isn't still evident when co-sleeping with an older nursing child? Its all telling the body that your currently busy with a child doesn't it?
And ecologically I read that a 3yr age gap is the 'norm' in natural child-rearing families that are not in the more modernised areas of using dummies etc?
