With dd it was 22m (EBF for 11.5m, night nursed until 3yrs). Ds is now 11m and still no AF. Pretty much EBF as well.

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :

DD1 - 4 or 5 months, not sure. She was EBF but started sleeping 10-12 hours a night very early.

DD2 - 13 months

DS - 17 months

(all EBF on demand, no pacifiers or bottles, cosleeping)

Ds1 - 11 months after a 2 week nursing strike
Ds2 - 11 months. I was annoyed. Really thought since he was barely having any solids & hadn't had a nursing strike that I'd get longer than with ds1.

With both, I had lochia for 6 weeks, even though ds1 was a cesarean.

AF returned at just about exactly 12 months PP for both of my children. I'm expecting the same with the third.

With the twins I was working (but EBF and pumping) and it came back at 6 months :

With Rivka about 20 months. Interesting she nursed much less than the twins did (Rena never took a bottle so even though I was away 6 hours a day 4x a week she was EBF).

Avrham Tzvi is 10 months and no sign of Aunt Flo yet

Mom to:

Three big girls  twins.gif (10) + joy.gif (almost 9!); 

One little boy ROTFLMAO.gif(6) and a full on toddler diaper.gif  (8/12) born with TAPVR heartbeat.gif (repaired at 6 days old).
