Absolutely and they do warn you that you are super fertile after!

It's called the Lactational Amenorrhoea method- NHS says

"When used correctly and consistently, less than 2 in 100 women who use LAM will get pregnant in the first 6 months. However, take care to use the method correctly. Don't feed your baby other foods because this may reduce your lactation."

You ovulate before your first post partum period so yes you can.
