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

10 months after DS and 15 months after DD. Still no AF with DD2 (she is 8 months) and since I'm using EBF to space my kids, I'm hoping for 15-18 months

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

DD was EBF (well except when I was at work she got pumped BM in bottles) until 6.5 months when we introduced cereal about once and increasing occasionally to twice a day until 9 months of age. At 9 months we increased her feeding to 3 times a day and then one day before she turned 10 months AF showed for me. Oh well, it was a nice 19 months while it lasted!!! Now to work on TTC#2....

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

with my first it came back at almost 7 months - which happened to be around 2 months after he started sleeping through the night -
of course that's what i blame for having #2 so quickly

we'll see on this one - so far nothing 8 months and counting

4 months. But I didn't start ovulating until 10.5 months PP. So it ticked me off having to deal with bleeding when it was pointless.

With DS#1 I got it back at 5 months (he had a pacifier), with DS#2 I got it back at 8 months (no pacifier).
