  • 4 weeks :( I am b/f so I was hoping it would be longer. My friend b/f and she didn't have one for over a year!

  • If you exclusively breastfeed without ANY suppliments (water, juice, solids, pacifier etc) for at least 6 months, the average is 14 months. If you don't breastfeed it can be as soon as 4 weeks.

  • i exclusively breastfed both my boys. with my first, it took about 10 months to return. with my second, it took 16 months. formula feeding moms get theirs much sooner and even breastfeeding moms can get theirs as soon as jut a few months later. it really varies from person to person.

  • I exclusively breastfed and I got mine back after 9 weeks. I'm hoping to go longer with the next one!
