In my case it came 3 months after I reduced the breastfeeding with both babies.

I'm 6.5 months pp. We're still breast feeding and pumping and my period has yet to return. My DD eats a lot during the night and I know the frequency of feedings and pumping has a lot to do with keeping you from ovulating. I'm interested in what other Mamas say here so I'll be following along.

Mine took a year to return. I breast fed till my DS was 3 years old.

I'm 5 mo pp with #3 and my cycle hasn't returned yet. With my older kiddos it returned once I stopped breastfeeding, but this is the longest I have been able to BF so I thought it might return by now?!

All my children were breast fed.
AF returned 7 weeks after #1 (BF till 19 months, fell pregnant with #2 while still BF)
10 weeks after #2 (BF till 15 months)
I got almost 4 months off after #3 (still BF, has just turned 2. Fell pregnant recently still feeding, but MC)

I got mine back at 4 mos pp, but baby and I had a rough start to breastfeeding and we supplemented Now I'm almost 9 mos pp, and I've only had 2 periods in 5 months, 50 days apart, but baby is nursing so much better now. I don't think I'll be ovulating or having regular periods for a while till she eats more solid food and slows down nursing.

9/10 months after #1 and 16 mo after #2. Both were breastfed and AF returned when I was down to only 3-4 feedings a day which took longer with my youngest because he was still waking up to nurse 3 times a night until he was 16 months old.

DD is taking formula and breast and shes eating every 4hrs sometimes 3....pending on the night before. A nurse told me to wake her thorugh the night to fed every 2-3 hrs. However she eates 4.5oz at a time. She also sleeps at one stretch 5hrs, she is 6weeks almost 7. Is that okay?
