  • After my first I started getting my period again at 7 months pp... I was still nursing. It was a normal period. After my second, I got my period again at 11 mos pp- I was still nursing and it was a normal period. With my third, I didn't get a period again until she was over two, but I was on the minipill and I think that's what kept AF away for so long.

  • I nursed my ds and he was 6 mos old when I got pg with my dd. I hadn't had a period when I got pg. I also nursed my dd, and I didn't get my period until she was about a yr old.
