    I dunno I always thought that it was natures way when you were ready for another baby but I'm not too sure why nature would think anyone is ready to go 4 weeks after giving birth!!

    Mine came back for 2 days last week. DD is 7 months old, BF on demand and wakes every 2 hours throughout the night for a feed.

    I breastfed for 15 months and never had a period during that time.

    I stopped feeding, and then started ttc, had a m/c straight away so I never really had a period. Pregnant again now, hahha, so I assume no period for a loooong time!! YAY

    In theory a bf mummy is the sole food source for her bub and since pregnancy can affect milk supply - nature protects the Childs food source by inhibiting ovulation and another pregnancy. This was especially important in bygone eras where food was scarce and women had less reserves.

    These days there is enough food for mums to bf and have successful pregnancies. Well in some countries and societies.

    But there are stuff ups as no system is perfect.
