  • I got mine back as soon as my guy had a bite of real food, like on the dot 6 months old. I know I have heard of other ladies not getting theirs back until they weaned though.

  • 8 months and 11 months. The average for exclusively breastfeeding is actually 14 months (this is assuming you continue to breastfeed beyond 12 months)

  • Let's put it this way. My LMP is from the cycle my OLDEST was conceived on.
    I got pregnant in March 2007. Baby born in December of that year. Nursed him exclusively for a year. STARTED weaning him on his first birthday, dropping one nursing session that first week. Six weeks after that, I was pregnant again without ever seeing a period.
    My second was born in October 2009. She's six months old today and I haven't seen a period yet.
    Apparently, I'm one of the women who don't get fertile until starting to wean, lol.

  • I got mine back almost exactly 5 weeks later. Shocked me and hubby had to make a run to the store for me lol. I didn't expect it for months.
