Ds2 is nearly 3 months old,I'm bottle feeding and they haven't returned yet.Just wondered what "the norm" was as I can't remember how long it was when I had Ds1.

I can take up to a year. Normally about four months though I think.

I haven't had a period for several years now thanks to pregnancy and breastfeeding, it's wonderful isn't it!?

No need to panic just yet then?.
I'm sure when I had ds1 they returned quite soon afterwards,but I guess each time/person is different so I suppose I should just enjoy the fact that they haven't started again yet.

Obviously if there is a chance you could be preggers it'd be a good idea to do a test though!

There's definately no chance of me being pg...thank goodness.
Was just in a panic as it seemed like a long time to wait.

Gosh I've never heard of someone desperate to have a period. Do you have shares in Always Ultra or something?
