    Default When did your periods return

    Wondering when I should be expecting my periods?!
    I'm not complaining this is great, I'm just wondering...
    DD is 5 months and I'm breastfeeding on demand, she's sleeping through the night has been for a month or so.
    I'm enjoying this hope it lasts!

    Mine returned just after DS turned 7 months. Seemed to coincide with him sleeping through the night regularly.

    7 months both times. Happened 2 weeks after both of my kids started on 3 solid meals a day. Of course my ds only went onto 3 meals for 2 whole days before getting sick and going back to 1 meal & 6 BF's a day ... but those 2 days were enough to kickstart my hormones again.

    My dd was a fantastic overnight sleeper and she went 12 hours between feeds for nearly 2 months (2 - 4 months) and that didn't make any difference. Those days are a distant memory now as she stopped sleeping through at around 4 months and still doesn't!

    Mine only just returned last month and dd is 22 months! It was a nice long break for me! My sister was the same with her bubs. First was 2 and the second was almost 2 before she got her period back!

    Mine returned after about five months. I was still breastfeeding on demand and through the night, but we did introduce solids at four months. Still waiting for my cycles to return to normal though, I've had 42 days, 38 days and 27 days.

    3.5 months. Still fully BF
    Fortunately I want to start trying for next bub soon, otherwise I would be majorly annoyed!

    3.5 months for DS1 and around 9 months for DS2. Both demand fed and plenty of overnight feeds.
