I'm not "breastfeeding" but I am exclusively pumping and AF just came back for the first time in December. I just had it for the second time this past week. I am pumping 4 times a day and that has been enough for 5 bottles and extra to go in the freezer so no suplimentation here. I did notice my supply drop pretty drastically with the first returned cycle, but it bounced right back and I didn't notice a difference the second time.

I haven't had an AF yet since Logan was born, He nurses about 4-5 times a day and he has jar food once to twice a day.

No AF here. Colleen nurses in the late afternoon and through the evening, but she gets formula bottles throughout the day. I am not pumping any more.

I keep expecting to get AF, but she has yet to show her face. I don't miss it one bit! (And no, I'm not pregnant. I've tested! But it makes me nervous every time we DTD because who knows, I might be ovulating!)

ugh. I got my AF at seven weeks PP. It isn't fair! LOL I seriously went straight form PP bleeding to AF (well, a few weeks in between) I was soooooo mad. I was exclusively breastfeeding at the time, and did until 6 months when we introduced solids. Now She's getting solids twice a day, unless she doesn't nurse very much during that day then I'll skip "dinner" to try to get her to nurse more. She does most of her nursing at night She nurses for four short sessions during the day and then three long (45 minutes or longer) at night.

No af here! Josie nurses 5-7 times per day and usually 1-2 times per night, she gets some solids, but only after she nurses.

No AF here either. Dallas loves to nurse- about every 2 hrs!! She also gets "lunch" and "dinner" solids. And she nurses 2x throughout the night. We give her formula irregularly though when she needs it- no more than 6oz a day so far.

I'm EBF still, and thank GOODNESS I don't have AF back yet. But, I'm just holding my breath at this point, hopeful, but not with high hopes. I had it back by 5 months pp with Rebecca! I'm so thrilled! LOL.

She has returned for me. Ugh! I am currently on my 2nd pp cycle. Brayson still breastfeeds like every 3 hours. No supplementing here. I don't know why she decided to make her appearance but I sure didn't miss her.

Vinny nurses every 2 hours, day and night and AF came back and was regular when he was only 3 months old... my body doesn't play around lol. I'm also on continuous BC (so I don't have periods due to endometriosis) and have been since he was 2 months but have spotting and cramping the same time every month without fail. Vinny also gets baby food 3 times a day but won't skip or go longer just because he ate. That kid is a pig, eats an entire jar of stage 3 food and then will nurse at the 2 hour mark from the previous nusing time but yet is still a skinny, tall boy!

No AF here yet. I nurse on demand, the number of times per day varies. We started solids at 6 months, she gets breakfast and dinner, but nurses first.

UGH, I have been bleeding for over a month now thanks to DEPO!

I am never getting another Depo shot again in my life!!! I breast feed Macey exclusively unless I got out for a couple hours I do allow her babysitter to give her a bottle if she wants to. I know that if I hadn't had that stupid shot I wouldn't even be having a visit from AF at all >.<

Pretty much ditto this. She also still wakes twice (at least) a night to nurse. It took a year to come back after ds, I'm hoping for the same this time around.

no AF here either. Breastfeeding 4-5 times per day and once in the night...I have been getting crampy over the past few weeks though and have no clue why...and yesterday I could have sworn I was PMSing...kind of wanting it to come though as we want to try again when Maddy's one...and I need to have a few cycles in there first to see if I'll have to go back to the fertility clinic....
