welp, it's BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! hit me all at once this morning... AF!! i haven't had a period since JANUARY 2009!! I did not miss them either! LOL!! I'm still bf JJ, but slowing down. I've introduced stage 2 formula. i'm having a really hard time accepting the fact that my 'baby' is outgrowing the baby phase - he's WALKING, having 3 solid meals a day, getting new teeth by the bunch. technically isn't that a toddler?! i really don't want to give up nursing, and even was able to keep bf thru surgery/recovery on my shoulder. but now i'm trying to re-gain the use of my arm and the surgeon told me that everything inside my shoulder was 'really loose'. bf loosens up all your joints, so i'm thinking that i need to taper off slowly. i love bf my baby (and he's my last baby)... it's going to be hard for me to give it up (now or later!). i have a checkup with the surgeon in late sept, so will talk to him about it before i wean my little guy totally.

it's funny too b/c with my older DD i got my period about 2 months after her first solid food. with DS it's been about 4 months since introducing food. but i think he eats and nurses more than she did.

everyone else already get AF back even though they're bf still?

Sorry to hear AF is back I am still waiting for her return. Not looking forward to it either. Right now I pump twice a day and he nurses five times and so far so good. Another reason I am not anxious to wean 
