Question for Breast Feeding Moms
Fri, 10-05-2012 - 10:45am

Hi Ladies,

I have a question for the BTDT Moms who exclusively breast fed: How long did it take you to get your period again after giving birth?  I know it's different for everyone, I'm just looking for an idea.  Thanks.

Expecting baby #1 August 8th 2012! It's a girl!

haha, funny you should ask! My little peanut is 8 weeks and I just got mine today! I don't remember getting this soon with my last two but can't really remember.

I've breastfed three children and it usually happened when I started feeding them steady real food so around 6-8 months but everyone is different.

I actually didn't BF'd Quinn for long, had him in Sept and it was Nov before mine came back. And so far with Sean (he'll be 8wks Mon) its still absent.
