    Default EBF Mamas-When did AF begin again?

    Just wondering how long it took for AF to return. I'm really enjoying this and not in a rush for AF She started food, but isn't really eating a lot-especially right now because she's sick. So this past week and a half we've been EBF. Never a drop of formula or skipped a feeding. I'm a SAHM so she pretty much has me on tap.

    With my oldest it was 6 weeks, with my youngest I think 10 months or so.

    It can really vary no matter how much you nurse. I've been lucky and it comes back when weaning. Around 11 months and 12 months. With my 3rd I was still nursing her at 18 months without AF when I got pg with #4. She is 6 months now. It sure has been nice only having a few cycles in 8 years.

    Both of my boys were exclusively BF. With DS1, AF came back at 3 months, and with DS2, it wasn't until 9 months. They both nursed the same amount.

    Around 5 months with my oldest but I quit BF her at 3 months. My youngest turned 1 last month and AF still isn't back.

    Around 12-15months with each.

    My youngest is 10.5 months. He had a paci from birth to 8months (self-weaned). We supplemented with a bottle of formula once per day from month 4 to month 6 because of low milk supply (I was hyperthyroid at the time). He started solids at 5months. In the last month he usually goes 12hrs during the day without nursing but still wakes a few times at night just enough to latch on and fall back to sleep.

    All that to say I *still* don't have AF! I do nurse my toddler every few days but I can't imagine she's nursing enough to make much of a difference since she only stays on for a few minutes.

    Mine never came back while nursing. When dd was 20 months old I took provera to get AF back so I could TTC.

    4.5 months and my dd eats like a newborn and cluster nurses all night. We rarely go longer than 2 hours between nursing sessions. Totally sucked, that witch has it out or me. I started spotting today...so my second one will be right about on time. Ugh.

    DS1 was 16 months, I think. Or maybe 18. The twins are 8.5 months and nothing yet.

    Jericho was right around 7 months when AF showed back up. He nursed until 23 months.
