When did your monthly cycle return afyer having your baby if you were breastfeeding. Was it when you stopped completely or when they dropped feeds? If the latter how much milk did they drop/how many feeds a day were they on when it came bk?

Just over six months in here and still nothing...felt like something might have been happening last month but nothing came of it...we are still ebf 5+ feeds in 24 hours though currently

My daughter was nearly a year when mine came back x

Came back after about 11 months both times when I started dropping day feeds (still fed morning and bedtime, and during the night).

Ooh following, I'm at 12 months and still nothing. I'm BFing on demand at night and first thing and express 10 ounces for nursery each day.

Four months, and he was still feeding eleventy million times a day and night. Most unfair. They are still a bit irregular though (10 months now)

Mine came back the month after I'd stopped breastfeeding

Mine came back when my babies were around 8-10 months old every time, coincided with when they were really starting to properly eat 'meals' and beginning to reduce their breastfeeds.

Breastfed for 8 months, period has just come the other day and madam was one in February, so took a while

Mummythebabysbeensick Mon 13-Mar-17 21:27:28

Almost nine months in here and nothing yet. Only doing morning and bedtime feeds (swapped the afternoon one for formula last week) and haven't fed in the night for a couple of months.

17 months when we started night weaning

I feel you Belmo.

How old was little one user?

Thanks for all replies. We are past the 12mo age. Nothing. Should i be worried?

Thanks for all your replies

With ds, exactly 10 weeks - ebf including at night

With dd exactly 27 days - again ebf and at night 😩🙄

4 months, baby was still nursing constantly. He's nearly 2 now and we're still nursing - periods have been regular and much less painful which is a bonus

firsttimemum15 Mon 13-Mar-17 21:32:04

Ive had nothing

bloodymaria Mon 13-Mar-17 21:35:06

20 months after DD was born,and I was just beginning to think it was never happening again. I did read that anywhere up to 2 yrs is within the range of 'normal' so I wouldn't panic just yet OP.

Tumtitum Mon 13-Mar-17 21:37:08

Im same as you first, DD is 13 months, we breastfeed morning and bedtime and in the night when she wakes and no sign of period yet. I'm not worried though, it took me a year to have a period after coming off hormonal contraception, I think it's just normal for it to take a long time for some women!

firsttimemum15 Mon 13-Mar-17 21:43:22

Tumtitum i do similar feeds. She has cut down loads now im at work and she is at nursery etc. Quick feed some mornings not 2x weekdays. Feed about 5pm and bedtime and overnight.

booox Mon 13-Mar-17 21:47:22

It's very variable and individual.

It was around 2 years for us! About a year after I went back to work so no feeds during three days of the week. I night weaned at 2.5. Took a long time to be regular.

booox Mon 13-Mar-17 21:49:41

It does seem to be and individual thing; I know women who were English on demand and periods came back quickly, another it was 2 years despite night weaning.

She wanted to ttc and irrc took vitex (though worth carefully checking out)

Squidgling Mon 13-Mar-17 21:51:31

Mine came back 3 weeks after DD stopped breastfeeding. She was 18 months old. Don't worry about it. For some people they don't come back until you stop entirely.

hellomarshmallow Mon 13-Mar-17 21:53:10

4 months exclusively breastfeeding twins! This time, 4 months again with one baby.

spider fish just made me feel better. That's terrible!!

firsttimemum15 Mon 13-Mar-17 21:53:27

Does it make a differemce if youre English?

What does "she wanted to ttc and irrc" mean whats vitex? What should I check put?

Sorry if I am being dumb. I am not up with the lingo on here

Obsidian77 Mon 13-Mar-17 21:54:40

6 weeks... Felt very short-changed.

Eclecticmama Mon 13-Mar-17 22:11:04

I think "English" is a typo for feeding, and TTC is trying to conceive. Not sure about irrc or vitex to be honest confused
