Re: curious? how long did it take to get your period while bfing

10 months right on the dot, every time, despite when I introduced solids! For my DS3 who had hydrocephalus, I EBF him until he could sit unassisted which was 11 months, all the other DS's could sit unassisted at 6 months which was when I introduced solids to them. I had always thought it was based on a reduction of nursing that brought it on, but it turns out that wasn't the case for us. It might be genetic, or individuals physical recovery time, or how much uninterrupted sleep at night that determines when people start? I do know that you can have your period without ovulating when BF, for those TTC and BF at the same time!

Re: curious? how long did it take to get your period while bfing

I exclusively breastfed (no pacifiers, no supplementation at all) on demand and I always got my period by 3-4 months PP.

9 months with breastfeeding and supplementing...DS started to refuse nursing. I have PCOS and very poor milk production but I breastfed supplemented and pumped every feed until he started refusing.

Re: curious? how long did it take to get your period while bfing

I am 2.5months pp and have been cramping and lightly spotting the last few days. I had this same question so thanks for asking it! With both my girls I went on the mini-pill right at 6wks and that stops AF from coming so I don't really know when it actually comes naturally.
