I’m still breastfeeding but would like to try for another baby. How do I ensure I’m fertile?

To encourage the return of fertility, you can space out the amount of time in between feeds,
reduce or eliminate nighttime feeds by allowing at least one six-hour period without breastfeeding and shorten the length of your breastfeeding sessions.

Decreasing the total amount of time that you spend breastfeeding will bring your period and
therefore your fertility back.

However, do keep in mind that during a baby's first year of life,
providing breast milk to your baby should still be the priority.
