by Zsuzsanna Anderson from Are They All Yours? – Q & A: Young Mom of Many Kids Struggling to do it All
Editor’s note: Zsuzsanna acknowledges that back to back pregnancies puts a significant stress on your body and family but cannot even possibly consider that perhaps birth control might be the answer to ending back to back pregnancies. Breast feeding does not work for everyone as a method of spacing pregnancies. It’s sort of like playing Russian Roulette, you might get by for awhile without getting struck by a bullet, but eventually you get shot.
Breastfeed. I say this with some reservations, as I certainly don’t want to make anyone feel bad who cannot nurse their child, nor am I implying that your kids are not a blessing. My point is that by exclusively breastfeeding your children without a schedule and without stuffing them under a hot blanket, your hormones would prevent you from becoming pregnant so close together, which of course makes your workload a lot harder and is a major drain on your body. On the flip side, remember that when your kids get old enough to really help out around the house, you will go from no help to having a whole team of helpers virtually overnight 🙂
