Your breastfeeding of first effect on next child
Posted in 2015

It's a myth that you can't get pregnant while breastfeeding, but at the same time, it's true that women who are still nursing one child may have trouble conceiving another one. "It impacts ovulation," says Dr. Schlaff. "It's not impossible—so it shouldn't be used as your only birth control method—but it is a decision that can have a negative impact on your fertility." Older moms who want to have another baby before they have to worry about age-related fertility decline should discuss how long to breastfeed with their doctor. Otherwise, it may be better to wait at least a year and a half before having another child, anyway: a 2014 University of Cincinnati College of Medicine study found that women who wait less than 18 months after having a child to conceive again are more likely to have a shorter pregnancy and preterm birth.
How long should I breastfeed my baby?
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first 6 months of a baby’s life. Breastfeeding should continue up to the baby’s first birthday as new foods are introduced. You can keep breastfeeding after the baby’s first birthday for as long as you and your baby would like.
How does breastfeeding benefit my baby?
Breastfeeding is best for your baby for the following reasons:
Breast milk has the right amount of fat, sugar, water, protein, and minerals needed for a baby’s growth and development. As your baby grows, your breast milk changes to adapt to the baby’s changing nutritional needs.
Breast milk is easier to digest than formula.
Breast milk contains antibodies that protect infants from certain illnesses, such as ear infections, diarrhea, respiratory illnesses, and allergies. The longer your baby breastfeeds, the greater the health benefits.
Breastfed infants have a lower risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Breast milk can help reduce the risk of many of the short-term and long-term health problems that preterm babies face.
How does breastfeeding benefit me?
Breastfeeding is good for you for the following reasons:
Breastfeeding triggers the release of a hormone called oxytocin that causes the uterus to contract. This helps the uterus return to its normal size more quickly and may decrease the amount of bleeding you have after giving birth.
Breastfeeding may make it easier to lose the weight you gained during pregnancy.
Breastfeeding may reduce the risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Breast feeding is protect your self and your child....If you conceive after child birth the nutrients in your body are not sufficient to your first child and to your next child...I advise every woman not to conceive again when your child is less than one year.
