I got my period this morning. DS is almost 6 mos. I EBF, no pump, no bottle, no paci, no solids yet. Room-share with bed-sharing night nursing sessions. We're down to only one or two wakings/feedings per adult "night" which I guess is a contributing factor to AF's return.
Is it worth throwing in an extra night feeding to try and send AF packing for a while or is it beyond my control?
I know everyone's period comes back at a different time, I've read several old threads here that say as much, but I just feel bummed. We haven't been relying on it for birth control (we use condoms), so that's not the issue. It just sort of feels like an end of something, though I'm not sure what. Like my new-mommy identity took a blow and I'm that much closer to regular pre-pregnancy life.
