    Default How soon/late did you get your PP period

    Baby N was born exactly 11wks ago today and I have yet to have a period. He is FF. I bleed for 3-4wks after having him but as of now, still no sign of a period. I have never really had a regular cycle, so I am thinking this has something to do with it. I was just curious what the average time was for everyone else....I mean, I am not complaining or anything, I would love to never have another period in my lifetime but I was just curious.

    My periods are very regular, my baby is 4 months old and have yet to get a period! I think with my other two I had gotten it by now, maybe this one breastfeeds more regular?

    6 weeks with DS1 and returned to predictable schedule immediately
    5.5 weeks with DS2 - have to wait and see if it continues and is predictable -but he goes 5 hours at night so I figure it will keep happening.

    With DS1, it was 8 months. He was breastfed but had bottles quite often.
    With DS2, it was 9 months and he was exclusively breastfed, only having a bottle when we went to a wedding or something.
    I feel bad for anyone that got it back before 4 months. Blah to periods!!

    after DS- I would have had a period at 15 months but I got pregnant at 14.5 months PP instead
    in DS's case I nightweaned at 14 months.

    DD- I just got a period 2 days ago, so almost 12 months. Probably would have been longer except DD went off the breast when I started antibiotics so I've been pumping since. I was down to pumping 4X a day so I got it back. first one in nearly 4 years
