AF return after same amount of time after each child?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Did fertility return about the same time with each child, or did the nursing behavior of your baby influence the return of AF?  I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find specifically what i am looking for.

 

I caught my first PP egg at about 20 months post partum....but DS was an avid nurser with food intolerances and is a light sleeper (aka nursed a lot through the night).  I just had DD a few weeks ago, and she is already sleeping a LOT more than DS did (already doing 2 4-6 hour stretches on many nights).  She also doesn't seem to need to nurse as much as DS (DS would want to nurse for 45 minutes every two hours, and preferred to sleep while latched on, while DD is much more efficient and doesn't really comfort nurse as much)...so can I anticipate that AF will return sooner with her? I know it's different for everyone, and I will be looking for fertility signs, but since we accidentally caught the first egg last time, I know that might be too little too late.  It was nice to not have to worry about birth control last time!

 

So...did AF show up after about the same duration for you after each child, or was there some variation?

 

Thanks!!

I had wide variations with each child on when AF returned. Two years of difference sometimes!

It was right about 18 months after all 3 of mine
