So here's the thing - my DS turned 1 two weeks ago, and I still haven't had my period yet. nothing, not a peep.
I breast fed him exclusively for the first 5 months, then weaned him onto solids early as he was so hungey - and I couldn't make enough milk - even when he wanted milk every hour and a half (he;s always been a big boy!) and I have continued to BF 3/4 times a day alongside 3 main meals a day + snacks.
I introduced a formual feed in the day when I returned to work 4 months ago. then another bottle at night, but still BF first thing in the morning, and when I picked him up afetr work, then again if he woke in the night. gradually, he;s become less interested in my milk, and now has whole milk x 2 bottles a day and only a 5 minute morning feed from me. Its been this way for around 8 weeks now. My breasts are almost back to pre-pregnancy size and don;t swell at all - even if I go a whole 24 hours without BF him (which has only happened a couple of times)
Although its been great not having to deal with periods - I'm starting to get a bit worried why they haven;t returned (no I'm deffo not pregnant)... my boy was born by emergency CS and I caught an infection in my scar 2 weeks afetr he was born - could this have something to do with it? Should I get checked out or is this completely normal?
Nearly 1 year old here and no periods. friend in same situation also. I BF on demand - about 4 times a day. Recently night weaned but still no period. Back at work next week so wondering if that will kick start them! Not worried though, but would like to TTc soon..maybe....
