    I have no experience with this, but had some ideas...
    Are you feeding on a schedule, or regularly? I got my period back after a week of feeding at odd times and missing a few nights when DS slept through.
    Would you consider partly weaning and pumping for his feeds instead?
    I don't know if it's very common for AF to come back and then dissapeared again, I'm not sure if it's really due to breastfeeding... but again, I don't have any experience with this.

    Did you increase feeds before your periods stopped again? I think stopping night feeds would be the place to start - apparently these feeds increase prolactin levels more than day time feeds.
