I totally got a raw deal on this one! DD is almost 6 months, and my period came back in full force yesterday! I have had a couple of episodes of light spotting over the past 3 months or so. Anyway, she nurses every hour, still, and sometimes she stays latched on the whole time we are in bed together for morning nap and night time. She did start going down about 7 pm a couple of weeks ago, though, and has on occasion slept about 6 hrs until 1 or so in the morning. We do family bed, so usually as soon as I go to bed at night she nurses, then every couple of hours until time to get up at 6 AM at the very least. Also, about 3 weeks ago, she reduced her nursing time from 30 minutes out of every hour to about 10-15 minutes every hour. I am sure this is what influenced the early return of my cycle. She also started taking a pacifier, but only in the car, and she is still nursing as often as ever. Oh well, I am happy she has stayed away this long, but I was really hoping it would be longer.
