    Default AF returned :-( what about my milk supply??

    I'm totally gutted... Might be a little emotional but I feel like crying! I just got AF!!! DD is a week shy of 8 months, will this affect my milk? I am still breastfeeding tho not exclusively as she's started to eat one solids meal a day months ago so I don't understand why they came back now!!!
    She's been fussy could this be why?
    DH and I won't be using contraception as we want more children but how would getting pregnant affect my milk supply? I want to keep breastfeeding :-( ahhh so emotional right now!!

    Don't stress Plenty of women continue to breastfeed throughout subsequent pregnancies. AF shouldn't make a difference either. Mine came back at around 10mths I think, and DD is 15 months now and still feeding just fine.

    AF returned at 10 months, I fell pregnant when DS was 14 mo and continued to feed no problems until I weaned him at 16mo.

    Thank you all so much for your replies, I feel a lot better today. Its good to know the reason why she's been so fussy lately, hopefully it'll all settle back to normal now.
    The good thing is I feel (physically) good, I thought Id be sick for sure but I don't even have my usually backache that comes with AF

    Im going to continue breastfeeding and Ill try not to think about the what ifs, really reassuring to hear ya'll kept breastfeeding

    PS sorry for the double posting i was using my iphone and it just posted the same thread 3 times!

    I got my period back at 7 months, DD is now 28 months and still breastfeeding! I found she used to get fussy and feed more around when AF was due. Relax, you can definitely keep BFing for as long as your lil one wants to
