Whats best contraceptive while breastfeeding?


Hello Mommies and soon-to-be Mommies!
Im 27 weeks now and on my 3rd baby. My first 2 is healthy girls, 7 and 2 years old. Im 29 years old and planning to have just 3 kids. I am wondering what kind of contraceptive you can suggest is safe for a full-time breast-feeding for both me and my baby. Thanks for the help!

My doctor always prescribed the mini pill for me.

I had my son 13 weeks ago and at 6 weeks i had the merana put in. I want my kids 5 years apart so for me it was the best choice especally sibe my bp was elevated at the end the dr didnt want to take a chance with the pill. Congeats on your little one

I wanted to avoid the pill so we used condoms. Not 100% of course, but my OB said that if I used it in conjunction with spermicide then the safety would be about the same as the pill. Honestly, if we were done, I would look towards getting hubby snipped :).
