Has anyone else experienced this? My nearly 6mo is hungrier these days so we have been giving him a formual bottle before bed and again in the night. This has improved his sleeping so much that two days ago we went from 3pm to 6am with no bfs, and was amazed to see my first period since last spring! I mean I knew they would come back eventually but could it really be that instantaneous?
I think you only need a 6hr break between feeds for your cycle to kick back in. I suspect it's more likely that a couple of weeks ago you had a gap in feeds, or feeds started to space out naturally and that was the starting point.
DD was still feeding 2 hourly when I ovulated at 11 weeks. DH thought I was imagining it until 2 weeks later my period hit with a vengeance.
