    DS: 19 months (BF on demand and he was a keen feeder night and day)

    DD: 8 months (she can go way longer than DS went between feeds and she has taken to solids better than DS did).

    3 months with my ds he was comp fed from the beginning so I wasent demand feeding
    DD is roughly 6 months now and no sign I am demand feeding no nights haven't done night apart from wonder weeks since 1 month she is on 3 solids a day but still snacks!
    I am a little freaked bcoz me and hubby DTD recently without protection :face palm: but the chances of me falling pregnant for a once off still BF would be low or should I be concerned?

    6 weeks with DS1, even though he fed constantly.
    With DS2 I had a tiny bit of light bleeding for a day last month so I'm thinking AF may return this month when he'll be 10 months old.

    I was exclusively breastfeeding but was told because he was sleeping 7 hour stretches from early on that was probably the reason.

    Sounds like there's no "normal" hoping I can stretch it :-)

    That's really early. My dd was having long gaps between feeds then too and it didn't trigger AF. I think we probably don't know what triggers that first cycle in some women. If you go back for more kids I hope AF stays away for longer for you.
