I think its because he nurses a ton at night, to the point I'd almost say he reverse cycles. I'm actually kind of surprised that it is not back at this point because I don't really think that much is different this time in terms of nursing habits. I haven't really had any signs of returning fertility either which I did with the others for a few months prior to my first period. I'm only 29 and don't have any fertility issues that I know of, I think it is just luck this time lol!

Then I had a second 20 months after the first. I was co-sleeping with BOTH, both we nursing all day and all night, and I was following all the rules for ecological breastfeeding because I really wanted to be able to rely on breastfeeding for birth control longer this time. My period came back at 4 months.
Every on is different. Sudden changes are supposed to be more likely to cause your period to come back than gradual ones.
Sometime between 56 days post-partum and about 30 months your period should come back ;-)
My dd is almost 18m and still no period, and we really want to ttc.
We nightweaned about 2 months ago ( with some periods where she would nurse again) and still nothing. I am getting sad. I started cutting back on day nursing a few days ago, she was still nursing every couple of hours. Let's see if that helps.
Anybody know how long it would take for me to ovulate now? She's only nursing morning nap and bedtime.
With DD2, not for more than a year (probably closer to 16-18 months), but I was also tandem nursing and had lost a lot of weight because of DD2's allergies, so I don't know if the delay in the return of my cycle was because of tandeming or because of the pretty severe weight loss.
