Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

After DS, it came back around 4 months. I'd just started going to college two nights a week and he was being supplemented those nights so I chalked it up to that.

With DD, she had no soothers, no supplementing,and co-slept and it was back again at 4 months.

I'm imagining that things will go much the same for me again this time.

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

I haven't had my period since may 29,2006

I ovulated and cuaght first egg when DS#1 was 9.5 months old. He nursed ALL the time, but STTN.

DS#2 is 10 months old and he still wakes to nurse once. But does sleep 9 hours straight so we are just waiting to see AF again

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

My daughter was 8.5 months when I got my period again. She's still nursing at naptime now, at 22 months but was completely nightweaned at 17-18 months.

Funny story about my first PP period, my friends' DS was born the same day as DD about 13 hours before. She got hers soon after 8 months and almost as soon as she told me I started cramping. Now we're pregnant at the same time (again, but we didn't know each other during our first pregnancies), and I'm due 8 weeks before her. Clearly, we cycle very well together, lol.

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

I was 27 when I had DS. He was a monster nurser - I had to kick him off the boob because he'd just lay there and suck all day if I'd let him - definitely a comfort nurser. I went back to work (and started pumping) when he was 6 mos. I got my first period back when DS was 11 mos. My periods were irregular though until a few months after he finally weaned at 27 mos.

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

usually I bleed for a long time, then get my period 2 weeks later (like with my first - bled 6 weeks, got af at 8 weeks. sometimes i have PP bleeding longer, then get af a couple weeks later). Once or twice I got it at 6months PP. Each time the babe was exclusively breast fed with no paci, bottles or anything. I guess I am just really fertile!

Re: When did you start your period while you were breastfeeding??

My lochia stopped around 5wks. I was pumping because I have flat nipples, but it seems once I stopped (finally got sick of it, and BG figured out how to get her mouth around it LOL!) it came straight back. She wasn't even 2 months old. It's been a perfect 28-30 day cycle since, lol. Although she did stop at 5 months, she is 16mo old. *sigh*
