Oh the bliss I'd for exactly those mos that I nursed my boys! With both, my periods were back the month after I decided to wean. 1.8mos. It was like some 'mental' connection there, since I was still randomly nursing DS2 once in 3 days(he fell and wanted to nurse, he'd trouble STTN, etc)
Lol!!! Yes my logic is not right

Re: When did your AF come back?

It took me 20 months for my AF to come back! I've never been on any kind of birth control, and my cycles have always been short, light and irregular which I'm sure plays into why mine took so long. We were TTC for #2 since DS turned 1 in June, but no AF until February. I got my BFP in May.

1: stopped pumping at work at 10 months, continued BFing at home. AF returned couple weeks later.

2: ditto number 2

3: she is almost 11 months and no AF. I did not return to work and bf on demand. No pumping so circumstances are a bit different this time.

All four times it came back by 8-9 weeks PP and for three I was exclusively BFing (no pacifiers). My oldest was my only FF baby and with him it came back later than my three BF babies.

Re: When did your AF come back?

Every mama is different! I got the lady back at 9 months pp. If you're nursing, some mom's cycles are very sensitive to nursing hormones. Others, not as much, hah.
