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!

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.

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.

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.
