Jamie Lynn Spears denies pregnancy rumors

Filed under: Celeb Parents

Jamie Lynn SpearsFor a minute there, it seemed like another Spears sister would be singing, "Oops, I did it again." Yesterday, the National Enquirer was reporting that Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant again, just four months after the 17-year-old gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann.

Considering the source, it's no surprise that Jamie Lynn's camp quickly came out with a denial. "She is not pregnant," said her publicist. Jamie and fiance Casey Aldridge have also been fighting rumors of a split.

What's interesting about this story, though, is that the original story quoted the "source" as saying that Jamie thought breastfeeding would protect her from pregnancy. Breastfeeding can provide protection if done exclusively, but as my midwife told me after my firstborn was delivered, "Breastfeeding is effective birth control if you live in a country without access to birth control. You don't, so don't get any ideas." But I know a lot of women who have depended on nursing to space out their children, with varying degrees of success.

As a teen mom, hopefully Jamie is being more careful than that. What about you? Did breastfeeding play a role in your birth control plan?
