  • I didn't have one until my daughter was almost 12 months. I started weaning her at that time, and then came the period. I think breastfeeding has a lot to do with it.

  • I think it was 10 months, because I breastfed.

  • I can't remember when it started after my first two, but with my third baby, it just started a week ago- I do breastfeed and he is 11 months.

  • I never had a period while breast feeding, so 6 months with my first child & 7 months with the second.
