Re: Exclusively BF: When did your period return?

14-15 months post partum. It was like a regular period.

I think mine were around 8 months. It was like a regular period for me--it starts out really light.

Around 3m PP with both. It wasn't any different than a normal period used to be. I didn't cut back on feedings or anything. I'm not sure why mine came back so early.

Mine actually didn't come back until 15 months both times even though of course by that time we weren't EBF anymore. I agree w/ pp it wasn't any heavier than before I was pregnant.

Re: Exclusively BF: When did your period return?

9 months with all 3 give or take a week. It was probably heavy as mine were always heavy regardless. However, I cannot say that 100% as I just don't remember.

With DD: 7 months and 1 day PP. Flow was maybe a little lighter.

With DS: 5 days shy of 4 months PP. AF came back one year to the day after I got my BFP, strangely enough. Flow was about the same that month, but in the year since then, it has gotten heavier and lasted longer.
