Re: Got my cycle while Bf.

I got mine back when ds was 10 weeks. He nursed (and still does at almost 5 mo) very frequently. Minimum 10 times a day, usually 11 or 12. I called my midwife because I was worried it was actually still a post partum thing and she said its unfair but normal. Average is like 11 months she said, and since plenty of women don't start until much later then I'm one of the ones pulling the averages back down. *sigh*

Returned for me at 9 months with all 3 kids regardless of how much or little they were nursing.

A few lucky women don't have their cycles start until baby weans. If I were one them when I knew I was done having kids I would make my youngest nurse until he went away to college. How is that for extended breastfeeding?

It's normal but still healthier for you and any new baby to wait to TTC. Building a baby takes a lot out of you nutritionally, so it's really best to wait 2 years, at LEAST 1 year to TTC to give your body time to regain nutrient stores for a new pregnancy. Birth defects are more common in pregnancies that are closely spaced.
