Best method after baby...

I have a lovely month old DD who is the result of microgynon (sp?) failure, although I wouldn't change the situation for the world, OH & I want to make sure we're protected as we don't want more children in the next two years. We've spoken about having another baby as we'd like our DD to have a sibling close in age but not trying for at least 2-3 years depending on our circumstances. I have family history of fertility problems, both sisters are unable to have children, this was found in their twenties & are now in their mid to late thirties & my mum struggled to conceive me, no problems with my sisters when she was quite young, but had me in her mid thirties. For this reason I don't want to leave it too late before trying for another baby but obviously right now is also not practical, I am breastfeeding at the moment & plan on doing so exclusively until DD is at least 3-4 months but hopefully longer & I don't trust the pill after it led to this although very happy, unplanned situation. Does anyone have any suggestions on what they think would be the best method? Your pros & cons on each too would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! smile

Don't rely on breastfeeding alone .

Coil would be good for you. More effective than the pill. Can last 5 years or have it removed before if you want to conceive. Can be put in after about 12 weeks so you need to use other protection until then (if you not too tired to bother with it). Ask your gp.

You don't have to wait 12 weeks ime, can be put in at 6 week check if all is back to normal.

Infants and very fragile capital sensitive stomach as well as your baby's digestive system is not fully developed, she has not been eating much, so the baby's feedings should be split up during the day.
