    Default Demand feeding - when did AF return?

    I remember it happening fairly early with DS1 and now with DS2 I think it may have arrived. He's seven weeks old.

    When I saw my Ob for my checkup the other week he was insistent that you cannot get your period if you're bfing. I did, so wondering when others did too?
    (I should add both my boys fed 1-3 hourly. DS2 rarely goes more than 2 hours between feeds)

    I still don't have mine and dd is 14 months old! I am still bf on demand and she feeds all through the night. I went back to work 2 days /week so on those days she goes without for 7 hours. I thought it would come back because of that but I am yet to see it return! Not complaining but I would like to ttc again soon!

    Mine came back when my son started solids and his poos started changing, which was around 6 months old. He didnt change the amount he breastfed though and didn't have much solids. He also fed frequently around the clock (every 1.5 - 2 hours) and still feeds a lot overnight. Oh I wish mine never came back! Ahhh that would be nice

    4 months here, and my DD fed 2 hourly (ish) including night til 12 months old.

    That's why you don't go to Obs for breastfeeding advice!
