I'm in the same boat and also wondering what's up. DD is 7 months old, still almost exclusively bfed (tiny amounts of solid food). I've had on and off spotting for about a month. Several times it's been bright red blood, so I think my period is returning. But then nothing, then another day of brown spotting. I'm not really concerned because we are not TTC and are content using protection. Just curious.
Also, I suppose I should acknowledge a bit of irrational fear. Is something wrong? Why all the spotting but no period yet? I know, I know, cycles while bfing are wacky.
BTW, we used nfp a la TCOYF for a year or so before getting pregnant, first as a way to avoid then as a way to conceive. After many years of the pill, I LOVED it, and it worked perfectly. But I decided I've got enough to worry about with a new babe, and nfp while bfing seems really tricky. So we're sticking to condoms until everything is back to normal. Could be several years.
Anyway, just wanted you to know you are not alone! Hang in there, and when in doubt, use protection.
