Any experience/info? Gave up a month ago (DS was 10 months).

Mine came back almost immediately - in fact when I dropped a couple of feeds my period came the next day.

I'm dying to do a pg test but feel I should leave it a more respectable length of time!

I had my first one when DS was six months and three nine days old, the next one was 50 days later.

I'm still bfeeding and he's 8.5 months old now - so they can come back before you stop.

Hope you get the result you want

I bf dd for 16 months but periods returned when she was 8 months old sorry no help really!

Mine returned after 18months whether I was feeding or not. I don't think that there is any set time, it just returns when it returns.
