  • Six weeks for all three kids. I EBF too, but wasn't lucky enough to not have my period. My sil was EBF too and went 17 months and 22 months without a period. Lucky brat :D

  • All withing a month for all 4 of them and unfortunately I breastfed. Not unfortunate that I breastfed, but unfortunate because I didn't get the lucky going without my period while I did it.

  • You ladies are making me nervous. LOL. I nurse too, but gave birth 3 weeks ago and we didn't wait the 6 weeks. We wanted to try for our last baby as soon as nursing stopped holding off my cycles, but we may be there faster than I hoped. Yikes!

  • And I thought I had the record! 14 months without periods. It is a "side effect" of breastfeeding to skip them.
    I was going to say that my friend was pregnant again 4 weeks after she give birth. You should've seen the Dr' face. LOL
