This is me too, exactly! DD is 6 mos. today, got AF 2 days ago, started solids this week.

Do others have an unusually heavy flow on the first cycle? Hoping this gets easier...

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

I got mine back both times at 13 months. Then it took me a couple months for cycle lengths to shorten (they start around 75 days!), lp length to get longer/my ovulation day to figure itself out. In the beginning my ovulation is so late that my lp length is short. Once my cycles get to their normal length so does my ovulation. I conceived DD2 at 18 months post partum and conceived this one at 19 months post partum.

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

I nursed my first utnil he was 8 months old. I was also supplimenting with formula. My period came back when he was about 6 months old, I think.

DS#2, is 21 months and still nurses a bit. My period came back in January, DS was 14 months. But it wasn't regular. Which is why we are now expecting baby number 3

God bless,
Michelle

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

Both my boys have been pretty much exclusively BF for the first year. I start solids around 8 months with each of them but had very little interest until after the 1 year mark. I had AF return with each of them at around 11 months just before I went back to work each time. Both of them nursed until 3 1/2 years old. Actually Carter is still going but very little each day now.

An interesting note is that Michael nursed at night about every 4 hours up until about 9 months old. Carter slept through the night 8-10 hours per night from 2 months old onward and that did not affect when AF returned.

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

With all my babies (5 so far), AF returned around 9 mos. I was 26 with my first & 36 with my 5th. Most of mine nursed round the clock on demand.

Yes, it was aweful, I was in bed for 3 days but they have gotten a bit lighter and easier since.
