Noooooooo! ...I've started my period. :-/ i was really hoping to be one of those women who EBF and don't get their period until like 18 months PP. **pouts** i hope it doesn't come back again for awhile.

But is this the reason she's been pulling and tugging on my nipple? Also, i usually have oversupply but the last few days i felt like my supply was finally leveling out. Might this just be a "dip" in supply because of menstruation?

Lastly, ...it's okay for me to finally use a tampon now, right?

Anything else i should know about cycling and menstruation after having baby and EBFing?

Yes, it is. The dip is temporary. And yes you can use whatever you like.

Carry on as normal.

I think it should be okay to use a tampon. I think it's 6 weeks you have to wait. I could be wrong, tho. I don't use them. lol

Mine returned at 5 months :-/ I was also hoping to be one of the moms that didn't get her ieriid for like 15 months pp! LOL! A girl can dream! It did not affect my supply though. I am sure you can use a tampon like normal too. Maybe start out with a small size though.
