  • Your period may not return until about 6 months after having a child. Your milk will take some time to completly dry up possible a month

  • it took about 2 months after i stopped bf. and it took over a year for my milk to go away completely, but only about a month to stop leaking.

  • I started my period about 2 weeks after Isabell turned 6 months old which had been a first for me. It was weird. As for milk I don't know bc I've never paid attention lol I'm on my 4th :)

  • Milk can be there for a year after weaning. And your period may or may not show at any time...ALL return dates are normal. You may even be pregnant already.

    So...be prepared. Aunt Flo likes to show up when it's least convenient. No one can tell you when it will happen.

  • AF could show up at any time. YOur milk could take a year or longer to dry up so there's no telling how long you'll need the pads. However I'm still nursing my 16 month old & haven't needed breast pads for at least 6 months.
