It depends how old your baby is and how you are breastfeeding.

Feeding on demand and co-sleeping with your baby with no substitutes for the first six months is what's recommended to use breastfeeding as a contraceptive by breastfeeding organisations, however many medical practitioners say that this is not guaranteed - but breastfeeding organisations say that nothing is perfect and following those standards it's more reliable than any other form of contraception, including the pill.
