My little girl is nearly 9 months old and is still full time breastfeeding, waking every 3 hours during the night to feed, most nights she co sleeps as it is easier.
I am concerned that my periods have not yet returned although I am aware that full time breastfeeding can cause this to happen. with my first child I only breastfed full time for the first 3 weeks, and made the classic mistake of not taking enough precautions and now only have 12 months between my two children. This has been good in some respects and not in others!!!
When my second child was about 3 months old I started getting heartburn, a previous sign of pregnancy for me, I waited about a month before doing a test, which was negative so I have tried to relax and not think about it. My periods still have not returned!!!
Has anyone else had similar experiences and should I be worried? Is the nightfeeding likely to have suppressed ovulation?
