Re: Returning to infertility
Generally once mama starts cycling, she's going to continue cycling even if she starts feeding her baby more often and starts feeding at night again. But I think that there are some women whose cycles vanish when they increase feeding frequency.
I think that if you want to use breastfeeding to encourage your cycle to go back to being on vacation, you'd need to pick up some nighttime feedings. High levels of the milk-making hormone prolactin are what lower your estrogen production and help prevent ovulation. Prolactin gets pumped out when the baby nurses. When the baby doesn't nurse, prolactin levels drop. So no night-nursing = long period of low prolactin = long period of higher estrogen = increased likelihood of having a cycle.
Even if you did pick up nighttime nursing sessions, I think it's unlikely that your period would go away. Sorry!
