Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

10.5 months with dd#1,
11.5 months with dd#2,
It hasn't returned yet and dd#3 is 6 months next week, I had some minor spotting around the 3 months mark but not enough that I considered it a period......

I got mine back at 22 months and it was extremely light when it finally returned and only lasted for a day. I would still get slight cramps and acne and pms, but just ... no AF.

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

I haven't had a period since December of 2004. I've been either pregnant or breastfeeding and never got a period while breastfeeding so far. I've been breastfeeding for a combined total of 2 years and almost 2 months and have been tandem nursing my toddler and baby for almost a year . I'm too coo for schoo! Lol. I'm hoping to get pregnant again before it has a chance to come back, and I'm not planning on stopping breastfeeding anytime soon.

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

It will come when the very last pad or tampon or whatever has gotten all messed up from sitting in your purse for 1 year plus. :-)

Seems like mine came with both older boys at around 9 months when they both were sick and started nursing less because of the stuffy nose.

#3 is 5 months and just got his first cold. Hopefully AF will stay away a little longer.

With the first Ds he was about 2yrs old. And I was only nursing part time from about age 2mths as I worked part time.
Second Ds was 9mths old. I wished it had been 2 years again, seeing I was home and he never had a bottle ever!

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

This same thread is going on in "Breastfeeding Support" right now... DD will be 17 mos in a few days and no AF for me.

Siobahn, good for you!! Wish I could tandem nurse but I don't think I'll see AF till DD nurses way less often. (And I was hoping to maybe have a 3rd baby soon...guess not.)

Re: FOR EBF MAMAS - HOW LONG UNTIL YOUR PERIOD RETURNED?

Henry is 9.5 months and I got mine back this week. I am really kinda ill about it, since he still nurses SO much, we co-sleep, I pump, AND he doesn't take a bottle/sippy of bm while I am at work you'd think I'd get a longer break. Grrr...
