For moms who ecologically bfeed (no pacifiers, no bottles, night nursing is unrestricted...) the average is 14 months.
I'm, shall we say, fluffy. I wonder if fluffiness is a factor...

With #2, #3, and #4, very successful bf'ing, nursing round the clock, etc. #2 had no soother but my boob, #3 did take a paci, and #4 found his thumb early on (which still amazes me--never had one express even a mild interest in their thumb before)--but none of them slept more than 1-2 hours that early on. All of those--1st ppp at 6 weeks. And yes, fertility too--#2 and #3 are 13.5 months apart--you do the math.
Guess it's just how my body works.
That's been different for each one. 13 months, 7 months, and 10 months.

After my first child, I started my period at ~11 months.
After my second (while tandem nursing), I started my period at ~19 months.
And I'm currently tandem nursing my second and third, so I guess we'll see!
so i was QUITE surprised when i got a period before ds2 was 2 months old. They both were EBFed, but my younger son started sleeping through the night really early and i guess that is why af came back so much earlier after his birth. (the sleeping through the night thing was short lived, btw- now at 1 yo he wakes up at least 2x a night (or more) to nurse).
