When did you get your first PPP while still breastfeeding? - Page 2
My son is 21 months and nurses a lot when we're together all day (6+ times) and 4-5 times when he goes to daycare in the afternoons. I just got my period back the third day of our 10 day Hawaiian vacation. I was shocked (and of course unprepared). It was also strange because with the traveling and sleeping with me in our hotel, his nursing had INCREASED... kind of weird.
My first baby i had to wean at 9 weeks and got a peroid shortly after.
With my 2nd baby I never really had a period (only two tiny scant spottings) and still got pregnant when dd was about 28 mos. She had been nightweaned for about 4 months. She was an avid nurser and terrible sleeper so I am happy that I got a break from a cycle at least.
This baby is 9 months and I still have no peroid. So, I have not had a peroid since May 2007 and it has been nice!
So jealous of all you ladies that go almost two years without a cycle!
MY LO was born around 33-34 weeks, I was pumping at least a dozen times a day and nursing her up to 18 times (yes, eighteen!) a day in her first 3-4 months...
I began have a regular cycle before my twelve-week postpartum check-up. My midwife almost did not believe me. Still nursing her at 15 months, still getting a monthly cycle.
