When did you start TTC for baby #2?
I'm 4 months pp and husband is ready to start trying for baby #2. It took us 9 months to get baby #1 so we don't want to wait to long to start trying for baby #2. My hope was to breastfeed baby #1 for at least a year. When did you start trying for baby #2?

Hi Beautiful! Four babies! I know you must be soaking in all the love from your new little one .
Thank you for your experiences ladies! I like the idea of 20-24 months apart so maybe we will wait a tad longer to start ttc again. I just worry it will take us 9 months again so I don't want to start to late. I think I'll stop with the BC at 9 months pp and see what happens. That way I'll get to breastfeed my daughter for a year incase my milk goes away when I get pregnant again.

After #1 my cycles started again when she was about 9 months old. We started trying (or rather not preventing) on the third cycle after that because we were TTC for 8 months before I got pregnant with #1. For #2 I got pregnant on that very first cycle. I continued breastfeeding through the first trimester but then starting losing too much weight so I stopped when she was 14 months. For both of my kids my cycles started again when the baby stopped nursing through the night (which was around 16 mo for #2!). It sounds that the first few cycles post-partum are very fertile usually. We waited longer to start trying for #3 and it took us a while. But if you start trying right after your cycles return, it could be very fast!
