I'm 4 weeks postpartum. Not sure if I want more kids, I need your Lagos feedback please.

I just had my 6 week check up and my doctor said that they only forms of birth control they recommend while breastfeeding are the Little Pill, Mirena, and ParaGard (the copper IUD). The Little Pill and the Mirena have such a small dose of hormones that it is ok to take while breast feeing and the ParaGard is hormone free! My husband and I would like to have more kids in the near future, year or so, and she said that with any of these 3 forms just stop taking the pill or remove your IUD and you're good to go! Hope this information helps !
