Do you breastfeed exclusively?

If so, when did your cycle return? My dd is almost 10 months and mine still hasn't returned. (I'm definitely not complaining, just curious) :-)

  • Mine took around 6 months I think, but that is when I started introducing food. I've heard it is normal for your cycles to hold off the entire time you EBF.

  • With my 1st, I didn't get it for 1 1/2 years. With my 2nd and 3rd, I got it in the 5th week postpartum.

  • I got it the first month after I weaned her at 12 months ... so about 13 months.

  • Baby is 6 weeks now, and it hasn't returned yet...

    Answer by GoodyBrook at 11:32 PM on May. 23, 2011

  • ALL return dates are normal. We've known moms to go a decade without... baby to baby to baby with nary a period in between. Consider yourself fertile at all times!
