my ds is 13 months...this is so much longer than i have ever waited before getting my moon back.

every woman is so different. you might be one of the lucky ones that don't have your 'moon' back until your LO is weened - totally natural and healthy.

it's called Lactational amenorrhea. many women use LAM (Lactational amenorrhea method) as a means for child spacing...

perhaps Google-ing that could give some more specific answers?

i personally had a period at 2 & 3 months pp spotted every 2 weeks during 4&5 months and then went 88 days with nothing and had a full period at 7 months pp and then 9 months pp. wacky. i'm now 11months PP with 'nothing' going on

my mother on the other hand was like you and didn't have ANY period until her babe was weaned. (between 1 and 2 years)
