If you're a low supply mama and supplementing in some way, when did AF come back? I have to supplement about 8-10 oz per day, but AF hasn't yet returned. As long as babe is draining my breasts, as little milk as they might be making, can I expect for it to hold off a while longer? With my other ebf babies (no supply problems with them), AF returned well after a year pp each time. Just wondering when your first PPAF started for you.
I got mine at exactly 5 months PP--by then I was supplementing about 18-20 ounces a day.
with ds i suppmented about 15oz a day, and didn't stop bleeding from birth until about 12 weeks PP, but when it stopped I didn't get PPAF back until he was about 6 months, during the time with no AF(3-6 months) I was also using a hospital grade pump to maximize my supply so I was draining the breasts as much as possible both by nursing, using sns, and pumping. At 6 months we also started ds on solids which may be why AF returned, pretty regularly I might add, except the first cycle was a bit heavier than normal...
I've been curious about this as well, I only make about 5-6 ounces of milk - we supplement using bottles. He nurses multiple times during the day and night. We are currently 3 months postpartum with no signs of AF.
