    I got mine back at 15.5 months. I was happy it had returned- for about five minutes. After that I just wanted it to go away again!

    Got it back at 6 months and DS still nurses nonstop at 15 months. For us it had nothing to do with nursing less!!

    My LO is just over 3 months and I kinda have mine back. I think I would consider it spotting... just enough to make a mommy crazy. But I have all the pain associated with a normal pd
    And YES you can get pregnant while nursing and not getting your Period!

    so this is going to sound dumb but how do you know if your period has returned. my daughter is only breastfeed and is 8 weeks old. today i noticed i started bleeding very light though. i'm not sure if it's a period or some residual bleeding. any advice? she feeds every 4-5 hours.

    With my second baby I practiced on demand nursing and my period did not come back for 23 months. I had one period then got pregnant. With baby number 3 I did the same and got it back at 17 months. I guess he doesn't nurse as often as my other one did.
