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

I had 9 weeks of pp bleeding and then 28 days later I got my period and been regular pretty much since then. I exclusively bf and do so every 2 hours except at night (my son sleeps through) but even then i pump.......I got jipped!!!

I should add....my son is just about 9 months old.

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

I had about 5 weeks of pp bleeding and AF returned for me at about 3 months. DS was EBF every hour and a half to 2 hours at that point... except at night... he'd sleep about 9 hours at night by 2 months! lucky me!... but when I first got AF back it was extra long... 35days instead of my usual 28days(down to the hour, seriously!)... but that only lasted for a few months and for the past couple months I have been right on... every 28 days... I think my body just likes to ovulate My DS was concieved while I was taking bc. DS is 9 months now and still nurses every 3 hours. Before I got pregnant I used to have cramping right before I would start and since I had DS I have no warning or cramping whatsoever Anyone else experience this too?

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

I'm one of the lucky ones-

DS#1- 18 months (after he weaned at 16 months)
DS#2- 14 months (while still BF)
DS#3- he's 13 months old and no PPAF yet...

Between DS#1 and #2, I had only 2 periods. Between #2 and my m/c, only 1 period. Between the m/c and DS#3, only 2 periods. So...in the last almost 7 years, I've only had AF 5 times.

Of course when I am ready to have another baby, my body is not always ready to resume production on it's own, but you can't have it all!

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

I was about 5 months pp when I had my first pp AF but it hasn't been regular until about the last 3 or 4 months...
We cosleep and J still nurses at night
I pump still (Jazmyne is allergic to dairy)
J nurses several times a day and was EBF until about 6.5 when I had to go back to work for a short time.
