Hi,

it is definitely possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding.

However, it is also possible that your periods are not regular yet.

Considering you are a month late, you should take a home pregnancy test as it should be accurate by now.

most women who breast feed don't start ovulating for about 6 months, but some start earlier and some start later.
the only way to know is to test.
and i thought you were not supposed to start solids until 6 months of age (according to my pediatrician anyhow...)
