Still bf at 8 months, period returned at 3 months. My supply dropped at around the same time, so now taking meds to keep it up.
My dr said it was kind of a 'chicken or the egg' situation. Did my supply drop because my period returned, or vice versa?
I personally will never rely on bf as a form of contraception
So disappointed though, was looking forward to longer without it
Eta Dd slept 10+ hours from about 12 weeks too. Dr suggested I start waking her for night feeds. I decided against it.

I was going to post a question like this and it seems like it can return whenever it wants!
I am still demand feeding my 7 month old DS and doing BLW, I've had one period since I gave birth (at about 8 weeks after) and I think I might be getting it back now. I have had cramping for a couple of days now and today a little bit of bleeding but it is brown (sorry if TMI). So my question is, did your first proper period begin like this or was it just like before you were pregnant and normal?

With my first two AF returned exactly 4 weeks after lochia finished.. With this one it's been nearly 5 months and it hasn't returned!
All were fed hourly around the clock, so I think it's such an individual thing!

8 mths- took me by complete surprise! She was still feeding at least 4 or 5 times a day too
Me + DH = DD! (4/4/10)

I was certain it was back from the first cycle, no easing back into it for me!
I wouldn't take any chances if I were you though

AF returned for me when DD1 was 7.5 months and down to just 3-4 feeds a day. She had been sleeping 12 hrs a night for a month then.
With DD2, AF returned when she was 5 moths old and I was feeding every 3 hrs.
So different for me each time. I'm hoping that this time it holds off a bit longer.
