nursing, weaning and trouble conceiving (long)
My daughter is 14 months old and is nursing. We are trying to get pregnant again, but are having trouble (no trouble conceiving DD) My OB thinks that it may be the continued nursing that is causing the problem and recommends weaning (apparently it is possible to have your period, but not ovulate). My plan prior to the problem conceiving was to let DD nurse until she weaned herself (thinking she would wean herself at about a year). Well I am not getting any younger, would like to have another child and our daughter isn't showing any signs of weaning. Has anyone else had a problem getting pregnant due to nursing? Will weaning her before she is ready cause any ill effects? Any information would be helpful.
