What did you use for BC after having a baby? Would you recommend it?

I'm trying to figure out what we're going to do. I know that I would like to get pregnant again when Lily is about a year old, so I don't think I want an IUD. And I'm breastfeeding so I don't want to go on the pill either.

I have an IUD because I'm not with anyone and didn't really want to take a pill every day or get a needle. I don't have to think about it, and it works for a long time which is great since it'll probably be a few years before I can have another baby.

I did the mini pill while breastfeeding and loved it. I had no side effects. The only problem is that once I went off that and went back to the regular pill, I had more issues with side effects. That wasn't because of the minipill though--that was just my body acting goofy (Hence, why I am preggo again I got sick of the side effects and went off)
♥Thanks you jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy ♥
