The poll allows for multiple choice in case you have more than 1 child. Also, if with your youngest dc you still haven't got your AF, please do not answer the poll then in order not to affect the statistics.

8 weeks. And it's our ex-parish's fault. :

(There was a prep thing we were supposed to go to before DD's baptism. Not a class thing, just a rehearsal of sorts bc this priest gets very touchy about people not being in the right place at the right time. I had to go to class--I'd missed the max number of classes when DD was born; yep, I missed a class to have a baby!. He insisted that DH go and there was no one to watch the baby while I was in class so the baby had to go with DH. The church was like 1-1/2 hours aways bc we in the middle of moving, and they were gone five or six hours. MP came back a couple of days after that. : So much for the Church being family friendly and encouraging NFP. Yes, we explained the problem to the priest. No, it didn't matter. Yes, we switched parishes, and are much happier.)

10 months - after I stopped nursing entirely. I find it kind of amazing, because I had some issues with breastfeeding and supplemented with formula pretty much the whole time, and towards the end he was only nursing once or twice a day.

With DD it came back within the first three months--even with exclusive BFing. However, from birth she never was interested in nursing more than once during the night unless she was sick. With DS it didn't come back until about 7 1/2 months again with exclusive BFing--of course with him it was every 1 1/2-2 hours 24/7 until he was right around 2 years old :
