Re: How long before AF came back while nursing??

Same boat here too - ds#2 is 10 1/2 months, still bf & but also having plenty of solids -- still no af.

With dd, 7 months; with ds#1 is was only 4 months

But as a previous poster said, I'm not complaining, it's just bewildering.

Mine just came back...day after DD turned one! I thought that was funny timing.

Re: How long before AF came back while nursing??

Mine was back at 5 mos pp...
I had to borrow supplies from my gf while I was at her house (I was obviously not expecting it), and her mom apparently commented to her "Well, if she's gotten her period back, she must not really be bfing all that much!". Ds had never had a bottle (not even pumped breastmilk, he won't take bottles at all) or a bite of solid foods - I am just less lucky than some!

i know that pisses me off too - that somehow if your af comes back earlier you must not be bfing right. perhaps i'm just too hyper-sensitive, but it always comes up in ecological breastfeeding/LAM threads. grrr.

I just got mine back yesterday and DD is a little over 9 months. She is 99% breastfed still, she gets tastes when we eat, but nothing to say she's eating much at all...

Mine came back the first time when DD was 14 months old. I weaned her at 27 months old. It hasn't come back yet after DS and he is 9 months old. Here's hoping I have a while yet!

Me too!!! Yesterday, DD was exactly 7 months. However, my DD is eating a lot and breastfeeding still just not as much. I was sad, but knew it was coming to due cramps!!
