    Post partum period while nursing

    Advertisements
    When did you get your first period back while breastfeeding? N goes to daycare Mon-Fri & we use pacifiers but my milk from my breast or pumped for daycare is all he gets.
    I had some spotting on December 7th and I assumed it was from birth control, which I only took a few pills and haven't been on it since the 5th of December.
    I started spotting yesterday and think is coming to stay

    N will be 3 months tomorrow.

    I vaguely remember but I want to say 8-9 weeks or so, and I was breast feeding.

    Sadly when you have to pump a lot it can cause you to have your period sooner. Along eih the 6 month "pregnancy safe rule" does apply either.

    But when I would take the mini pill I would bleed randomly. It like induced my period to come

    Grace: 8 months
    Evangeline: 12/13 months
    Henry: 9 months (I mostly pumped, but also nursed and supplemented. Stopped pumping at 5.5 months. He nursed from one side and I supplemented. He still nursed at night and in the early A.M. when prolactin is highest)

    Ziva will be 5 months on the 12th and I still haven't gotten my pp period. I have had some spotting/cramping that makes me think af is on the way but she doesn't show. I pump and breastfeed....I also have the mirena so that's probably part of it too.

    Sofia I'm not officially sure. I think I got one in December but not another until March and then May.

    Max I basically jacked myself up. So who knows when I really would have gotten it. But I'm onMirena so yea.

    ... But we basically tell people in LLL that once anything is introduced however little or my h ( pumping, supplementing, pacifiers etc) all best are off when it comes to your period.

    I'm pretty sure mine came back at 15 months . It was fabulous. Maybe this means you guys can get some good baby making in now!
