How can I increase my chances of getting pregnant while still breast feeding?

Hi Alex,
My daughter is 12 months old and we have been trying to conceive for the past 5 months. I am breast feeding about 4 or 5 times a day. How can I increase my chances of getting pregnant. i am not ready to stop feeding yet. Thank you

Answer: Hi, If your daughter is 12 months old you can start to introduce cow’s milk and she does not need as much breast milk. You can reduce the number of feeds to see if this helps. Otherwise try to eat a healthy diet and get some regular exercise. Best wishes, Alex
