Re: Return of cycle...did I miss something?
Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong. Return of your fertility cycle can occur at any time while you are breastfeeding. It's a spectrum: some moms get their periods back within a few weeks or months of birth, the average nursing mother gets her period back around 15 months postpartum, and at the other end of the spectrum there are some few women who won't resume cycling until their babies are completely weaned.
Basically, getting your cycle back becomes more and more likely as time goes on. Many moms resume their cycles around the time their babies start solids or start sleeping through the night.
