some people get a preiod right away, some when they starty solids, some just when the body wants it to. My first I got it back when he was 10 months old (not yet starting solids), my second child I got it back when he was about 4 or 5 months old (he had not started solids either), and my third I got it back when he was 15 months old (he started solids at around 9 months or so).
I EBF for 13mos and my period came back b/w 10-11mos. Every body is different.
It varries woman to woman & pregnancy to pregnancy. It could return before you wean, immediately after you wean, or several months after you wean. Mine usually returns somewhere between 24 & 30 months post-partum (I do Child led weaning). My sister nursed her first to age 1, but didn't get her period back until 18 months post-partum
It comes back when it comes back. We've seen moms get it back while nursing, we've seen them get it back MANY months after weaning. Be prepared... all variations are normal.
i got my period while still BFing, mine came back at about 9 months. it varies on the person i suppose
