I've breastfeed for idk how long total, but almost 11 months this time. My period are hit and miss right now. Sometimes I have one, sometimes I don't.

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.

Lucky you! I've been exclusively breastfeeding the whole time never a bottle or one drop of formula. She's almost 4 months and I've had 3 periods lol. 29 days apart. It only delays fertility for some people. I guess I'm not one of em :(

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.

10 months with my last two kids, but only after I stopped pumping (first "nursed" til 20 months, second weaned at 9 months). This is my first baby that can nurse effectively, so I'm hoping AF stays away a lot longer!!! She doesn't take a paci or bottles, but sleeps through most nights

This!
With my second, it came back at 6 1/2 months after a nursing strike due to teething at 6 months.


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.
