Okay my first I bf for 6 weeks and got AF by 3 months. My second I bf for 3 months and was supplementing from like 2 weeks and got AF 6 weeks after I weaned so around 4 or 5 months. My next 4 were EBF and I did not get AF until they were a year old. This time around I am not sure what to expect. We are at about 50% breastmilk/50% formula. When do you think AF will show up? Do you think it will stay away as long as it has for my EBF kids? What's your experience?

I have been wondering the same thing. With Angelica she never took to BFing so I only BF for about 2 weeks and I got my AF back about 2 months PP. With Natasha she was on about 50% BF and 50% formula from the first couple of weeks and I was 6 months PP when AF returned. I've been wondering whether to expect about the same time with Sam or not.

~ Thank you Patty for my awesome siggy! ~
