I've been breastfeeding for 12 months now, I havn't had my period, so I'm probably not ovulating, or could I be without having a period... and she still drinks 2-3 times at night. I know that people have gotten pregnant while breastfeeding 2-3 months afterwards but what about no period and about 12 months later?
That's an old wive's tale...you most certainly can get pregnant while breastfeeding even if you haven't started your period. I know a girl that works with my mom who got pregnant like 8 weeks after she had her baby and she was breastfeeding.
I didn't start my period until 11 months after my daughter was born and I breastfed exclusively only for 6 months. It's weird but you still can get preggers!
