So far, not until we're weaned. With DD1 about 15 months pp, dd2 about 23 months po, and still no sign of it while BFing my 7 mo. I have been crampy off and on for a couple of weeks though.

I'm typing on my iPhone, sorry.

Almost exactly 4 months. When I stopped pumping so frequently to curb my oversupply. I think it may have even come back that same week.

Re: When did af return?

With all 3 of my BF babies, I have had some spotting/bleeding around 6 or 7 wks post partum. With DD2, I thought it was AF, but now I am not so sure. She started sleeping thorugh the night around 2 weeks, and by 2 months old, she was going like 8 to 10 hrs. We encountered other issues nursing, and AF started being regular about 3 months post partum, and we were done nursing at 5 months, with AF being totally normal at that point.

With DD3, after that initial spotting/bleeding at 6 or 7 wks, I didn't have a return AF until like 10 months post partum, when we started to slowly wean.

WIth this little guy, I had spotting last week for 2 days, then 2 days of EWCM. Today I woke up to full on bleeding. I am 8wks post partum tomorrow. I don't think my body knows what it's doing. We are fully 100% ebf, on demand, round the clock.

No kidding. We'd like to wait awhile before TTC but I'm considering getting pregnant now just to keep it away I've had about 6 cycles since they started back up and that's about enough.

To answer the second question, my first PP AF was lighter than it used to be, but still obviously there. (I think I might have ovulated once about 3 months before that but had no period. My supply tanked at that time with no other explanation, so that may have been a possibility.) The second and the ones after were all just like the old days. Although my cycle isn't as regular as before.
