  • Mine took 18 months. I know someone whose period returned after a month.

  • With both of mine it returned once they stopped feeding through the night

  • Everyone is different mine came back at 6 months although I was still feeding 2hrly and my son was not yet on too many soilds-was so annoyed!

  • mine returned a month after finishing feeding (14 & 13 months) with my first two and before finishing feeding (9 months) with my third.
    Every body is different.

  • I breast fed for 15 months, but my period came back at 8 weeks!

  • I am still enjoying my vacations :p
