My son is 2 years old and continues to breastfeed. My periods have not returned, and I'm suprised because I thought they would have returned by now.
I'm nearly 40 and my husband and I would like to try for another baby. So I'm anxious not ovulating, since my fertility window is already closing.
My son nurses during the day about 5 times, then at 8pm before bed. He was waking around 1am to nurse but recently I have been encouraging him to go back to sleep without nursing, so sometimes he won't nurse again until 4.30am/5am. I had read somewhere that if a baby goes for 6 hours without nursing at night, periods can return.
Does anyone have any thoughts or advice?
