DD is 7 1/2 mo old and I ebf... I still haven't started my period which I'm ok with and have heard that I may not get it for a while. Is their mamas out there the same as me? Or moms that have gone through it how long was it till you got yours back?

I got mine back when my son was 8 months old.

Mine was 13 months when mine came back and it was irregular, so now I'm pregnant again.

We;ve had moms get it back at six weeks, and moms get it back at two years plus. We've had moms go baby to baby to baby without... making for a period-free decade! All variations are normal.

I am eagerly awaiting my menopause. If the doc wanted to do a hysterectomy on me I'd ask if it could be booked in the next five minutes. I'd prefer the Y Chromosome Defect to that aspect of being a woman!

LOL. That is part of being a woman that I would be thrilled to NEVER have to deal with again. I have a friend that didn't get hers for almost 3 years. :D

That's good to know :) I mean I love not having it but at the same time not having it makes me feel not so much of a woman if you know what I mean.

I did ecological bf'ing with dd... babyled solids starting at 6 months... she wasn't really interested in eating much until 11.5 months. I got my first period at 14 months pp. Got pg at 18 months pp. I think the frequent nursing and minimal solids help stave off my period for so long.
