Ds1 was ebf and aunt flow showed up like normal, ds2 is also ebf but aunt flow hasn't shown up. Dh and I don't use protection so I've taken 3 hpt's all were neg. So my question is has anyone else had periods with one bf baby but not the other?

How often did you take an hpt before you had the positive one?

Quoting MaryJarrett: All different here too. No period after #1 but I did get a pos hpt at 9m. Period after #2(while tandem) at 15m. Period after #3 6months.

Mine were all seriously delayed, from 15 months at the earliest to 26 months at the latest. I took hpt's every 3 weeks so I didn't get any surprises. Unless there was no need to test if you catch my drift. Many months I didn't need to. ;-)

Breastfeeding can delay ovulation, so many moms don't get a period for months. If you know your signs of ovulation and watch for them, you may not need to take the HPTs all the time.
