Hi Alex, I am very blessed to already have a beatiful daughter and son. However, I am really. looking forward to having number 3! My youngest is 5months old and I am exclusively breastfeeding. Can I get pregnant now? If not, what do I need to do to make this happen? Thanks :)

Answer: Hi, You may be fertile and when your baby starts solids in the next few months, your periods will return and you have a greater chance of falling pregnant. Best wishes, Alex
