Hi there and welcome to the board!

PPAF usually doesn't return until around 6 to 18 months (sometimes shorter and sometimes longer). Exclusive BFing has been shown to space children about 2 years apart. You are still very much in a normal range of time for AF to not have shown up yet, and I would try not to get frustrated as your body has not been able to get pregnant yet. Often as fertility is starting to return, you will notice fertile cervical mucous (like eggwhites) and you can actually have several patches of this before O occurs and AF arrives (or you ar PG) You have two choices-wait until AF arrives naturally and continue nursing as long aas you and your son both wish. Or wean and have AF arrive sooner. Only you know how the importance of the nursing relationship compares to the urgency to ttc. That being said, lots of women do get pregnant while nursing. If you wish to have more of an idea of what is going on with your body and possible catch the first PPO (and avoid AF altogether) you can watch your body's fertility signs and chart your basal body temps. The book "Taking charge of your fertility" by Toni Wechsler is a great resource.I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions you might have, and good luck with whatever you decide.

Hi,

I am a mom of 5, all stair steps. You are still nursing 5 times a 24 hour day. That is still too much (in many cases) to O. Cut it down to 3 times, and especially cut out the night feedings. You need at least a 6 hour period of non nursing time over night to begin ovulating. It worked for me that way. My oldest is 6 then 5, 4 almost 3 and 8 months. It was the overnight time that began my ovulation.

Yours,

Suzanne
