First baby was 6 months, second baby was 2 yrs (he stopped nursing at 18 months but I just don't have cycles anyway) with my 3rd I never had a period I got pregnant when I ovulated for the first time at 12 months pp. With #4 I am 11 months pp and no sign of ovulation nor AF. Breastfeeding duesing surpress ovulation for me. So I have to take something to have a period every so often so my uterine linning doesnt get to thick!
I'm still breastfeeding at 22 months. My period came back at 17 months and has been regular since.
Quoting MusherMaggie: Some moms don't have one the whole time they're nursing, some start back when the baby sleeps through the night or starts solids.
