    I think that is one of the reasons I got pregnant with twins the second time around.  That and my age.  I was still nursing at least 3 times a day x 2 when I conceived Evan & his (vanishing) twin!

    I'm on my Nook and can't open the link, but I was breastfeeding four times a day when I became pregnant with my boys (my daughter was 8 months old). I never knew that could have contributed to my chances.of conceiving twins! I'm glad it did though! I'm loving every bit of this crazy ride!

    Of my 6 kids, the only ones NOT conceived while breastfeeding were my oldest and my twins.

    I have always been suspicious that bfing contributed to my twins.
