Successful Breastfeeding Blog
Evidence based advice, support, and education for modern families.
Today I'm talking about your menstraul cycle!! Yayy!!!! (Or not.) I asked The Successful Breastfeeding Community on FB what questions they had about lactation and their periods... and whoa did they come through!
You may have heard that if you nurse your baby, you won’t get your menstrual cycle. You might have even heard that you can’t get pregnant while breastfeeding. Well, today I’m breaking that down, busting these myths, and sharing the truth about what to expect.
The truth is, there is no black and white answer to almost any lactation related question. So, I thought it would probably just be easier to break it down on The Successful Breastfeeding Podcast.
So here you have it... your complete breakdown of your period when you're breastfeeding/chestfeeding.
