1-2% seems pretty low to me. People do get pregnant while BFing. If you are having unprotected sex and have missed a period I would take a test.

I don't think breastfeeding is a good form of birth control. I exclusively breastfed for over a year, but I was on the mini pill the whole time. I wasn't ready for another baby.

Generally speaking that 1-2% is dependant on whether you are truly EXCLUSIVELY breastfeeding. Bfing part time or pumping and feeding bottles, not BFing at night... schedule feeding and giving baby a pacifier while you make them wait another hour to eat, whatever the case if you go more than a few hours without baby's mouth on your b**b, your odds will significantly increase. :)
