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

I got mine back at 5 months PP. I was hoping it would stay away longer, but no dice. We were EBF, but DS was and is a great sleeper, so I went 7-8 hours between feedings at night starting at about 2 months.

Yep, same thing happened with me. pp bleeding stopped at three weeks and AF returned at 5 weeks. I had 19 day cycles for 3 months after and am back to 28-30 day cycles. I really was thrown for a loop with that!

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

I have heard that sleepng/ AF theory too have just have to laugh. My kids don't sleep through the night on a consistent basis until they are at least 10 months, and I get AF back at 7. I wish they would sleep better then!!

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

I am almost 8 mths pp and none yet---I've taken a couple of prego tests. I have been getting crampy and he's not nursing as much-mostly at night.


I'm enjoying not having it!

DD is 13 months and I still haven't gotten it back yet. I do have an IUD, so that might have something to do with it.

She is still nursed on demand on the weekends and at night and has soy milk during the day at daycare.

My AF came back at about 8/9 months PP I was usually only nursing 1 time at night and then a lot during the day but he loved his solids and was even getting some table food by then.
