How long until your period returned? If you have multiple children, mark all that apply.

Thanks, mamas!

If less than 12 months, answer on this thread here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1169310

20 months for me. DD was nursing but around that time she got really active and wasn't nursing quite as much. I started getting moody about 2 months before that.

13.5 months and DD nurses at least 4 times during the day and we partially night weaned so she only nurses twice at night.

DD1 - Returned at 21 months, exactly two weeks after I night-weaned her. Prior to nightweaning, she nursed every 2 hours through the night.

DD2 - 16 months down and nothing yet. She wakes to nurse a few times during the night, but nowhere near as frequently as her poor-sleeping older sister.

I do have PCOS, so I don't know if it's nursing or inferility or a combo of the two that keeps it away.
