Re: AF only 3 months after baby :(

I was wondering the same thing. I had pp bleeding for 5 weeks. Then one week off and AF came. She's been regular ever since...3 cycles now. I've never been this regular. I haven't noticed a dip in my supply would you know?

Girl I was in your same shoes last month! I thought maybe it was just a mixup and I wouldn't get one this month. Nope, got it this past weekend. I'm bummed too because I thought I wouldn't get it the whole time I was breastfeeding.

I did notice last week before I started that it took a little while longer to get let down to start but not much. I don't know if that is cycle related or I just wasn't drinking enough water so I upped my water intake and things are back to normal.
