So jealous. If only it were true for all women!
With both of my children, I had it back before 4 months PP.
6 weeks with my daughter (yep, you read that right).
14 weeks with my son.
I breastfed each on demand, around the clock, exclusively for 6 months, and for the first 2 months, every TWO hours because they both were severely jaundiced. No bottles, no pacis, wore them constantly, and slept with them IN my bed.
Period came right back like I wasn't even nursing.
And with my son, I was still nursing my daughter... so TANDEM nursing on cue, it still came back at 14 weeks.
