With my last DD I got it back at 15months PPD.

I also only have had 1 AF in almost 3 years Not too bad!

Re: EBF mamas: How long before AF returned?

I started bleeding 4 weeks after my first son was born. I was ignorant though and thought that I couldn't possibly be having a period with exclusive breastfeeding, so DH and I weren't "careful" if you will, because again, I was under the impression that we were "safe" and I wasn't ovulating I was pregnant again by the time my son was 2 months old.
Learned an important lesson LOL and I got out of having a period one way or another in essence.

Mine came back when she was completely weaned at 13 months, I had two cycles, then got pg again! I've heard that it may take longer if you are skinny, but I don't know how true this is.

Mine was kind of random. I had one at 6 weeks then not again until about 7 months. And now, its gone for another 9 months
