    Advertisements
    When did you get your first PP period? Was it painful? Were you breastfeeding?

    DD was 13 months old when PPAF came. It was normal like all other periods before and we were nursing 8 or less times a day.

    I was almost 4 weeks exactly with both girls. I wasn't pumping or BF'ing with Emma, but I was pumping with Madison...didn't make a difference. AF still showed.

    I think I was like 8 or 9 months? But I've only had like twoish now, and they're super light and short. No cramps with the first one and the one I'm...erm...experiencing right now, has some cramps but nothing too terrible. Oh and I still BF on demand, so it can easily be over 8 times per day.

    My first postpartum period after Kaia led to Kalista and that is the only one I have had in.... 30 months. It was very light and only lasted a few days.

    Hmm...I still haven't had a PP period and I'm usually under the 8x's a day BFing. Then again, I didn't get period before I had Landon, so I'm not really surprised I'm not getting any now I was just hoping that maybe having Landon helped fix some of my fertility issues.

    G: 8 months - exclusively breastfed
    E: 13 months - exclusively breastfed
    D: 8 weeks - he died so no breastfeeding
    H: 9 months - combination of pumping, nursing and supplementing

    ETA:

    I was breastfeeding when menses returned. The girls self-weaned at 16 months and Henry at 21 months.

    about 6 months PP and I didn't breastfeed and it doesn't stand out in memory as being painful.

    I got it 6 months PP and it wasn't too bad. Just like a normal period if I remember correctly. I was mostly breastfeeding. I say mostly because when we would drive 2 1/2 hours out of town every couple weeks I would pump during the car ride so he could take a bottle in his car seat.
