Women who breast-feed after having a baby often go several months (sometimes longer than a year) before they start having menstrual periods again. This is called LAM (lactational amenorrhea)

They can, but in my case it was False! I had my first AF after PP bleeding stopped mere days later. Then I had mostly monthly bleeding after that even though when beginning to chart showed I wasn't actually ovulating.

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

I'd go with false because I thought LAM was only for the first 6 months, I didn't think this was still considered LAM if your fertility didn't return beyond that. Though I know that some women are lucky enough to be without a period for that long, I never have been...*sigh*

This is true, but you have to meet the following specifications:

1. Your baby is less than six months old
2. Your menstrual periods have not yet returned
3. Baby is breastfeeding on cue (both day & night), and gets nothing but breast milk or only token amounts of other foods.
