15 months pp and AF has come for a visit

I have never nursed while having AF so what can I expect?

-------------------------------------

sooo, this is my first time using mama cloth

usuallly by now, i am DYING of cramps, and i am bleeding like a stuck pig, but today....

im barely cramping, and still just spotting, light pink with some brown..i dont think its even getting to the pad, mainly just when i wipe(sorry :/)

i poas yesterday, and it was neg so im 90% sure its not implantation, esp cause ive NEVER had that with my other 3 kids

is this just cause of the no chemicals in mama cloth? if so..DAMN! i wish id known about them years ago, lol

You may not notice anything. Your nipples may feel tender when you have AF or when you ovulate. Baby may want to nurse more if your supply dips. I'm guessing you probably won't notice anything different.

Nothing? Maybe sore breasts and a slightly cranky child?

Not much, really. Supply drops will be temporary. Carry on as you have been.

I've had AF since my son was 6 weeks old. I just notice he gets cranky, my supply doesn't dip much. He just gets cranky and clingy

I didn't notice supply dropped during AF. I have had periods (non consistent) since I started taking bc. Dd was 3 months when I started taking the mini pill again and a week after taking it I started spotting...I didn't notice a drop in supply.

Everything should be fine, sometimes you see a small dip but nursing on demand should be just fine especially after a year and sometimes baby hates the taste of hormonal milk

well, he nursed just fine, AND i leaked out the other bewb, lol

so i dont think ill have any issues with supply...i hope lol

he doesnt seem phased by any taste difference, so thats good!!

My first period was always really light, kind of a mini period. Sorry, the cloth pads are not THAT good :-)
