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

With my ds it was around 5 mnths and my dd around 4. It's just not fair.

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

I put "longer," but that is mainly because I have an IUD. That said, I'd been EBF for 3 months when the IUD was inserted, with no AF. Who knows how long I would have naturally gone without a period? No clue.

It varies quite a lot from mom to mom. A friend of mine from my birthmonth community had AF 8 weeks pp, despite the fact that her son was EBF; while I know of women whose period did not return for nearly 2 years!

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

5 month pp while ebf, nursing on demand, co-sleeping, and no paci's. I even pumped a little in there. Nursing while having periods wreeks havoc on my supply, my mood, and my poor nipples. Though flower essences have helped a great deal with my PMS and herbal teas/remedy for the supply drop.

I also found out I am the freak of the family, everyone else was ppaf delayed until their lo's started solids or stopped nursing completely. YEA ME!

17 months with nothing and since then only a little light spotting and a supply drop for 2 days each month
My ds is still nursing strong at 22 months. Due to his food allergies he really did not start solids at all until after 15 months and solids only make up around 10% of his diet now
