    Default menstruation question

    Hi mamas,

    I am still proudly nursing my 1 old and my period has not returned. Is this normal?

    Thanks,
    MJ (mom to Indy)

    Mine returned at 11 months with my first child (followed by less nursing when I had mastitis). My daughter just turned 1 last week, and still no period.

    The average for a nurse-on-demand (or pumping and nursing freely) mama is 15 months, and it can even be quite a bit longer than that, too. Mine returned 19mo pp, and is still not regular.
