“This is the only method of child spacing that appeals to my husband and me in every possible way. Myself, I look for simpler answers—ones that women in non-technological societies might discover—and in breastfeeding I found it.”
“I read your book, Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing, when I was pregnant and I found it very inspiring and helpful. I went 21 months without cycling after my first was born and 25 months after my second was born. My third son is 7 months old and I am not cycling yet. My husband and I do not really use [systematic NFP]. I have found that breastfeeding is enough.”
Ecological Breastfeeding: For those interested in spacing births via ecological breastfeeding, I encourage you to read The Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding: The Frequency Factor. It is the latest, up-to-date version on this topic.
The Seven Standards of Ecological Breastfeeding: The Frequency Factor, Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing, Battle-Scarred, and Natural Family Planning: The Complete Approach are 40% off through August 7 at lulu.com.
Breastfeeding Survey: Any mother who has done ecological breastfeeding and has had a return of menstruation is invited to complete the NFPI breastfeeding survey. If a mother believes the Seven Standards did not give her an extended period of breastfeeding infertility, we would like to hear from her also.
