Will birth control interfere with breastfeeding? Due to birth control tricking our bodies to believe we are pregnant, so that we do not become pregnant, which power is stronger? My body naturally making milk for my child or the birth control-created to take control of my body???

You'll want to double-check this with your doctor, but my understanding is that if you're breastfeeding there is a "mini-pill" (progesterone only) that you can take. I *think* some moms notice a decrease in supply, but it is generally safe for baby. Also, if your baby is under 6 months, has been exclusively breastfed from birth (NO supplements given EVER), and you have not menstruated, your chances of getting pregnant are about 1-2%.
