    i got it around 13 or 14 months pp i think.
    its normal to not get it back for quite awhile. when it does start up it can be irregular (really short and really long cycles) and thats also normal. once i had a 64 day long cycle so keep an eye out for that.

    8 months with DD1 and 12(ish) months with DD2. I never really got AF back with DD2 - I just got pregnant on what should have been my first cycle. I think 12-14 months is considered pretty average for the exclusively breastfed baby. Even once solids are introduced if your son is still a hearty nurser 12+ months is normal. Unless of course you have other concerns about why it may have not returned - then I would talk them over with your healthcare provider. Otherwise, enjoy the break!

    Average is 15.5 months.

    Mine has come back at 12 months to getting pregnant at 16 months with no AF. Even with pumping exclusively this fourth baby, I didn't get it back until just 6 weeks ago.

    15 months. I pump weaned at 12 months, so I was no longer pumping at work. I wonder if AF might have held off longer if I had continued pumping or been nursing him all day.

    4 months, 3 months, and 9 months. And when it came back it was almost perfectly 28 days, like clockwork.

    I started on the mini pill after a couple weeks PP with my first two babies. But this time around, it took me a while to get around to picking up the prescription. I had a little bit of stabbing pain shortly after I stopped PP bleeding, and thought "no way can I be ovulating yet!" and I tried to ignore the possibility. However, two weeks later-- and just two days after finally starting on the mini pill-- I had a full-blown period. Guess it's a good thing I took the mini pill after my other babies, or I might have ended up with these boys a whole lot closer together!
