Re: 2 Questions 1. Aunt Flow 2. babybed Sidecar
1. Your menstrual cycle may return at any time. Some breastfeeding moms will have their cycles back very early, only a few short weeks or months postpartum. Others will go months and months before their cycles return. And still others will have their cycles return only after they wean. Many moms will see their cycles resume when the baby starts sleeping longer at night. The longer prolactin (the breastfeeding hormone) levels are low, the more estrogen levels will rebound.
2. I have never heard of the home-made sidecar crib. I honestly wouldn't use any sort of side-car arrangement unless the sidecar was firmly connected to the adult bed. Too much risk of a gap forming, allowing the baby to fall in and suffocate.
