Re: When did you get aunt flo back?

With DD#4 (my first breastfed baby)-almost 13 months. I found out a few weeks later that I was pregnant with #5. DD#5 is 9.5 months old and about 3 weeks ago I had a few days of light spotting. I'm not sure if that's concidered a period or not. The 1 period I had after DD#4 was really heavy, so I'm not sure. Nothing since then. She's still nursing several times a day and quite a bit throughout the night. I got paranoid and took a HPT (even though DH had a vasectomy several months ago) and it was negative.

Re: When did you get aunt flo back?

I have a 7 month old and no AF yet **knock on wood**

I'd be happy to avoid her as long as she'll stay away

Re: When did you get aunt flo back?

With my first, I started some solids at 4 months (what did I know? LOL)- AF back at 7 months PP, pg by 8 months PP

Second, we waited until about 6.5 months to begin solids, AF back at 7 months again, pg by 8 months, AGAIN

Third, we didn't give ANYthing but breastmilk until maybe 8 months-ish, AF back at 9 months

I would love to be one of those mamas who don't get it until they wean completely!

Re: When did you get aunt flo back?

with mady i started solids at 4 months(I know I know!) and she was only nursing at night and on bottles of formula during the day(again, i know i know!) and I didn't get my af back until 10months pp. I weaned her at 7months.
with sara she didn't do solids until 11months and was still nursing until 22 months but i got af back at 11months when we started solids.

Well it just depends on the person.. ds just turned 2 and STILL no ppaf yet! He's just down to bedtime nursies now, but I don't think af will return until he's completely weaned.
