EBF mamas: How long before AF returned?

DD is 10 months old..I get the feeling AF may be on the way. I know it is different for everyone, but I am just curious when other mama's returned.

Re: EBF mamas: How long before AF returned?

My DD is 13 months and I still haven't had a PPAF. It's sort of been feeling like it was coming for the past few months (off and on) but nothing yet. I'm totally cool with that though!

After my son was born it was one year exactly when my first PPAF came.

Mine was at about 5 months. It seems irregular too, like cramping/spotting in between

DD was 11 months (and BFing CONSTANTLY!)........ and I have a feeling it was an inovulatory cycle. However, I got pg the next cycle so I only had one PPAF lol

I picked the 6-9 month option, but AF came back at 6 1/2 months. I was EBF, nursing throughout the night and everything! It's different for everyone, though.

With my first two, I went back to work, and AF returned shortly afterwards (when they were 12-15 weeks old). This time, I get to SAH, and she's MIA still at 4 months. Not that I mind!
