    At about 5 months both times despite co-sleeping and nursing on demand . I did go back to work 2 days a week at 4 months. I don't know if this contributed. BTW DD didn't start sleeping through the night until she was almost 20 months, until then she nursed every 1-2 hours all-night-long

    Hard to tell for me. I'm on the Mireya and I thought I had a little spotting around 9.5 but not even enough for a pantiliner, and only one day. Then I thought I actually had a period at 10.5 but it only lasted 1 day too! That could just be the mireya giving me light periods though.

    I've had two periods, the first coming back at 6 months, and the second at 9 months. Having charted, I have yet to see a clear indication that I'm actually ovulating yet though.

    I can beat that, 4 weeks. Right on schedule with it's old routine, apparently my parts are like clockwork.

    oh wow....glad to see that it's normal for it take a while...DS just started sleeping 10-11 hour stretches a couple weeks ago plus I'm gone 2 days a week (although I'm pumping every 4ish hours). Just a little paranoid that I might be pregnant but too nervous to take a pregnancy test!

    18 months with number one (after night weaning for a couple of weeks to try to get it back-6 hour stretch at night not nursing.) 23 months with number 2. I have always been very regular and when my periods came back they were immediately regular although very different-much lighter and much less cramping.

    I guess I'm being paranoid cuz a few close friends have asked me if I'm pregnant again after muttering that i'm "glowing" and look different...Also, I have been a LOT moodier and more queesy. I don't feel ready to have #2 so I feel weird about this...I was hoping hearing about other mamas return of AF would make me feel better but truthfully I am going to brave it out and take a pregnancy test tomorrow morning just to make sure its the BF amenorrhea and not another pregnancy! YIKES I'm very nervous :-/
