Re: EBFing..When did YOUR cycle return?

I don't remember with my first two, but with my third it was after 12 months. And you can have mine! I hate it!

Re: EBFing..When did YOUR cycle return?

WELL, let's see lol. DS1 was 13 months when we weaned, and I got pregnant right away. So no cycle from nov of 05 to around feb-mar of 09. Finally had a cycle, and went and got a mirena put in in may of 10 and havent had a cycle since.
As funny as it sounds, I'm actually jealous of mama cloth users! they look so squishy and comfy and I wish I had had a chance to try some good MC before getting my IUD.

I'm so jealous of all you mamas who had so many months before PPAF! Mine returned between 3 and 4 months all three times even though I EBF, no paci, and even co slept with #3! Maybe this time... ha.

Re: EBFing..When did YOUR cycle return?

6 months for me. I've had two now, and they were spaced a little further than normal apart. The first period was great--totally not the horror of the first postpartum period that a lot of people talk about (it was just a little heavier than a normal period). The second one was even better. It seemed a little longer than a regular period, but for the first time in years, I didn't have to take any pain killers for the cramps--they were so mild. I hope that's the new normal!

About 14 months.

I EBFed/pumped for the first 6 months, and he still nurses before bed at 17 months.

Enjoy the break from AF!

Ohhh.... THAT'S why my first PPAF sucked... I didn't know that it was supposed to and was NOT prepared.

And yes, super jealous of all you other mamas. 5 months PP for me, but we can go ahead and blame it on my son's binkie-addiction.
