About 7 months with DS. I started my period the moment we started him on solids. But with DD (born 11/22/07) TWO MONTHS. I'm exclusively breastfeeding AND I'm pumping for twins...and AF shows up every 26-30 days anyway. The good news is it's very very light and only lasts for about 3 days, so I suspect it's anovulatory.

We're using protection anyway.

Got my first at 20 months. DS nursed a lot, and I have PCOS. But I've been pretty regular since. It took changing the bedtime routine so that I didn't take a bath with him anymore. And moving. Go figure.

I bled for about 5 weeks pp, then started getting my period 2 weeks later....every two weeks. :

This continued on for a couple of months, then my period got REALLY wacky...which is a whole other story.

ETA: Alivia nursed until 27 months, never had even a TASTE of formula, and has co-slept since the beginning, with no pacifiers.
