Just curious. My period returned at 8.5 months with DS and DD is now 8 months old. I'm wondering whether I might see AF soon...........

Baby #1 - returned at 6 months
Baby #2 - returned at 9 months
Baby #3 - returned at 9 months
Baby #4 - still no AF (almost 14 months old).

My AF came about a month or so after weaning.

AF would have arrived when DD1 was 6-7 months old, but I fell pregnant that first time I ovulated so it obviously didn't show up.

With DD2 AF returned when she was 7-8 months old, so around a similar time for me original.gif

No my first returned a week after post partum bleeding stopped at 6wks then with my second I got it back around a year after his birth I think. Both fully breastfed as well

No, they were all different. With DD1 it was around 7 mths. With DS it was 6 wks, coincided with him starting to sleep through & he was a terribly lazy breastfeeder anyway (although I persevered until 12 mths). With DD2 I can't actually remember but it was months rather than weeks.

Roughly the same.  Maybe slightly earlier with the second so 16 months with #1 and 14 months with #2.

Bikingbubs - poor thing! I thought I was ripped off when mine came after about 10 weeks with DD1!

Really hoping it's not the same this time!

Both at 10 weeks despite exclusive and overnight breastfeeding.

Yeah pretty much the same each time, around the 12 month pp mark. I'd already weaned 1 of my children fully by that stage (and mostly night weaned the others) no difference, 12 months. But my body takes a looooong time to recover hormonally.

It returned around 6 months with my first which was the same time it returned for my mum so I thought there was some sort of connection there. DD1 was still feeding around the clock.

Then with my second it came back around 8 weeks!!! I was tandem feeding DD1 and DD2 so wonder if that had anything to do with it?? Although it meant I was feeding a lot, maybe the fact one was older (almost 3) tricked my body or something... no idea. I felt totally ripped off though.

DS - 4 months on the dot
DD - 6 months

I had one period after each and got pregnant again, despite exclusively breastfeeding. I feel incredibly lucky, my body must like being pregnant...

After all five of my babies my period returned 4 months post partum and I had fully breastfed babies.

#17 niggles

12 weeks both times. DD was sleeping 12 hours at that point so that wasn't suprising in her case but with DS I'd only finished bleeding post partum a few weeks prior and he was still feeding overnight. I felt a bit ripped off in that case.

Not for me.

#1, period returned around 5mths (dd was in the process of self weaning)
#2, it returned at about 5 or 6mths, can't exactly remember. He was breastfed till 18mths.
#3, it returned at 7mths, and only had 2 periods before I was pregnant again. She is 2 & still breastfed.
#4, dd was 6mths a few days ago, and no sign yet. Though I have the mirena in, so it may be delayed due to that. I'm still breastfeeding her also.

DS: AF returned at 11 weeks, DD: AF returned at 9 weeks. I definitely got rolled original.gif

DD - 7 weeks.
DS - 6 months and no sign yet.

Both exclusively breastfed. (Although have now started solids with DS)
