9 months BFing now and still no AF, and that's with having to pump at work. I was so worried when I started pumping at work that I'd get it back, but so far so good!

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

I had PP bleeding for about 8 weeks, I was so sick of it. And then I was EBFing like every hour and still got my PPAF back at 4 months. Seriously, it was like 2 weeks after the PP bleeding stopped that my period came back. I was so annoyed.

And I had a C-section, so I am very glad that we haven't gotten pregnant before now, my body needed the time to heal. We are TTC #2, so we'll see!

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

Did you have a natural birth or a c-section. Because it's common to have spotting for a long time after a c-section. Especially if you are doing too much. Even if it doesn't seem like too much. I was still spotting for months after my last one. But it took me a while to heal up. I would get it out of nowhere. But I have been breastfeeding non stop for almost 6 years now between 3 kids. Not a single day without having a child on my breast.
And with each one, my period didn't start until 18 months. Actually, after my 2nd breastfed baby, my period actually didn't return. It was 18 months, and my hubby was deploying. I thought I was timing it good. But I knew it was going to be close. Well, it ended up being too close and I found out I was prego 2 weeks after he deployed. Kept wondering where AF was. Now my youngest is almost 11 months. I am going to have to start stocking up on mama pads! It's crazy for me to think that I have only had about 6 periods in almost 7 years!!!!!

Re: when did AF return (when EBF) for you?

My daughter is 18 months. I EBF her. She started solids at 7 months, but never consistently ate solids until a year and even now at eighteen months is such a picky eater (surprising considering she is tall and 25 pounds, too)... but I didn't start menstruating until a few months ago. And my periods have lasted about a day every time. For a while I didn't realize I was menstruating because it was not like regular periods (like on the 20th each month for six days kind of thing).

ps, we're still bfing
