    I EBF both of mine until 14-15 months.
    Period came back at 6 months both times

    I stopped pumping during the day at 14 months and got my period back a month later, still breastfeeding about 2x night at at almost 18 months.

    4 months, coincided with DS starting to sleep through the night and my supply tanking.

    I think I got mine about 3 months postpartum even while EBF. I was disappointed to say the least, lol!

    11 months with DS1 and 10 months with DS2. DD is almost 7 months and nothing yet, so I'm hoping I have a few more months.

    15 months - I was still nursing. AF returned almost exactly 4 weeks after LOs stopped nursing overnight. At 15 months they were nursing 2x per day (morning and bedtime) and shortly after we reduced to just bedtime then weaned at 16 months.

    I was amazed at how STTN impacted my hormones!

    After 12 months I cut down to nursing just in the morning and before bed, and my period came back about a month later (so 13 month pp). Then I immediately got knocked up again, lol.

    About 16 months. My body doesn't switch gears until I drop every last feeding.

    @meadow: lol, your body is like alright, you're sleeping again, so you can handle periods again

    LO1: would have returned around 11.5 months but I got pregnant

    LO2: 14 months

    LO3: is currently 14 months and still hasn't returned. (still bf a couple times during the day and overnight)

    DD: 10.5 months
    DS: still waiting at 13 months, but I’m tandem feeding, so I think that has something to do with it

    I didn't get my period back until I 100% weaned each kid. With LO 1 it was 10 months pp, and with LO 2 I nursed until about 13 months old, and period came back a few weeks after I stopped, when he was 14months.
