Re: Another extended breastfeeding and ovulation question
Welcome to the forum!
The time until return of fertility varies a lot from mom to mom. There are nursing moms who get their cycles back at a few weeks or months postpartum, and some who don't get them back until their babies are completely weaned. On average, nursing moms get their cycles back at around 15.5 months postpartum. They also tend to get them back relatively soon after their nurslings drop way down in frequency- say, when they start sleeping through the night or really pick up their intake of solids. Since your toddler has only recently dropped his frequency down, there's a good chance that your body is still gearing up to have a cycle, and if you just give it some time, it will.
That being said, if you're concerned about your chances of having a second child, I recommend that you get yourself a copy of Toni Weschler's excellent book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" and use it to start charting. Even without having had a postpartum cycle, you may be able to pick up on the signs that your body is getting ready to cycle.
