My baby is 6 months old and I've been having some very light pink spotting in my mucous for the last couple of days. Definitely not a period, and I'd be very surprised to get AF before weaning b/c with my first child I didn't get AF until I had completely weaned at 10 months ( many months after he slept through the night and started solids). But then again, last time I never had any spotting like this either. My son does eat baby food 2 times a day and goes anywhere from 4-8 hours at night without nursing. Is this a signal that I might get AF soon? Or just some BFing weirdness?

Spotting is considered fertile, it could be a sign you are ovulating or just that your hormones are starting back up, so you MIGHT ovulate.

I hope she stays away! I spotted on and off for months before AF showed up, and we had to start supplementing at night which brought her on.
