5. NFP and Ecological Breastfeeding

August 5th, 2017

“Breastfeeding has a very definite effect on child spacing.  With my bottle-fed children I conceived again at 8 months after childbirth despite other contraceptives.  It has been 15 months since the last baby was born.  No period yet.”

“My son nurses on and off during the nights.  He is 22 months old and I have not had a period yet.”

“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 am currently nursing my 17 month old without a return of my periods.”

“My period has just returned, just now that we have been on holiday at the seashore!  So it’s after 37 months 4 days post-partum.”  Italian mother

“God didn’t mean for women to become baby-factories, giving birth to a new child every year.  In order that our bodies could recuperate from childbirth and build up strength for a next pregnancy,  He planned that breastfeeding would render us infertile for one to two years.  Why should we bother with foams, artificial devices or the pill?  God’s plan is so much nicer!”

“I first read your book when Lynda had nearly weaned herself.  It certainly makes sense, and I am looking forward to having another baby.  I only wish I had known more when Lynda was a baby because contraception can be such a worry.  I would never go on the pill again.”
