Ive tried doing some research on if this will effect my fertility or not but keep finding different answers so I'm pretty confused! I've got my periods back in July, fairly regular except last month I had more brown blood then fresh read blood, she only nurses before a nap and to go back to sleep ( about 2 - 3 times), sometimes its used just for a comfort and less for eating, you know? she's also on solids (3 meals a day) and drinks water and juice.
I'm really hoping to get pregnant in the next couple month! any advice would be greatly appreciated! has anyone got pregnant while bf-ing? will I need to wean her completely?

I have known a few women who have conceived while breastfeeding and some have told me that the quantity of milk they produced after they got pregnant dropped quite a bit. If your baby isn't breastfeeding too much any more though, it shouldn't be a problem.
