If you breastfed but didn't use any kind of birthcontrol between babies, what is the age difference in your children?

I've done nothing to prevent pregnancy other than breastfeeding and my children are 2 years and 1 month, and 2 years and 2 months apart. I did have a miscarriage between my 1st and 2nd so if that hadn't happened there would have been a 21 month age difference. My baby turned 1 yesterday and I still haven't gotten my period back this time, which is the longest I've gone, so I'm assuming this baby and my next will be at least 2 years apart as well. It seems like very few people use only breastfeeding to space their children and I'm curious what the average spacing is in this situation.
