    The day before his first birthday party! I've had three now and they've been really regular. Funny because, before I had a baby, they were pretty erratic! Since my periods returned, I've had a lot of ups and downs emotionally - more down than up actually. Some really low downs. Anyone else had that? Not trying to hijack the thread, just wondering!

    The Seven Standards of ecological breastfeeding: (1) exclusive breasfeeding for the first 6 months (2) pacify baby at your breast (3) don't use bottles and pacifiers (4) co-sleep for night feedings (5) take a nursing nap (6) nurse frequently day and night; avoiding schedules (7) avoid practices that restrict nursing or separates you from your baby. The average return of menstruation for ecological breastfeeding mothers is between 14 and 15 months.

    My DS was 16 months when I had a sort of period last month. He's just 17 months now, it's been 32 days since and no repeat period. So, yeah, I don't really know what's up with my body! And no real big change in his nursing habits...still nurses frequently during the day and a few times at night!

    So yeah, I was lucky to be free of it for so long. But we want to TTC again, so I do want to start ovulating again. And maybe I am, who knows. I'm thinking of taking a preg test just to see.

    I wasn't lucky like some women are! I got my first post baby period at 7 weeks! Then they stopped for a couple of months and came back regularly starting at 4 months. I never gave formula and didn't start on solids till 6 months so I felt kind of cheated by my body!
