Posted by   + Show Post

I'm just curious. i breast fed my daughter for 14 mos. i didn't start until 12 mos. Now  I'm BFing my son he's 9 mos. I haven't started yet. Does anyone feel pms'y with no period? i do sometimes.

I breast fed for a month so mine started shortly after that. Sorry not the best example, but I am also curious about this because I will be breast feeding longer this time and would like to know as well.

I didnt start it until one month done bfding. We were driving from Wi to Tn to meet husbands family for a family reunion- not the best timing.

Mine showed up 18 months post partum to the day. Definitely felt like i was going to start several times before then.
