  • Around 5-6 months. And I both breast and formula fed. It could be longer if you are EBF.

  • I did EBF and my period came back around 6 months or so after dd was born. Then I didn't get it again for about 8 weeks and then it kind of got back on track after that.

  • My DD was 8 months. Had 2 pd's spaced 45 days apart, then got pregnant and miscarried. Still no pd since and still EBF my 12 1/2 month old.

  • Lol. I didn't notice how that sounded. She eats solids and drinks water and occasionally cow's milk. She still nurses at least 3-4 times in a 24 hour pd. Nurses in the MOTN also.
