You can still chart while you are BFing with very irregular to no menstruation... right?

I've been charting since 2m pp, and would have no idea I was pregnant if not for my chart

You can but it's not as reliable as it is when you're not BFing or ovulating. I chart and BF, but I've had regular periods since 8 weeks PP.

I tried charting while breastfeeding, no pp AF for me yet. But I got bored! lol I loved charting while TTC, but since nothing is going on right now I got bored. I also had a hard time with the consistant sleep thing. Kate was still getting up several times at night to nurse. It would make my numbers all over the place. She's more or less sleeping through the night so maybe I should try again!

I tried, couldn't do bbt because I didn't get regular sleep, so I tried the whole cm thing. Well I had none, so I guess it worked, because as soon as it showed up I knew we were getting close to AF again. But I agree, it's boring, more fun when you are trying for baby than preventing baby.
