    im just wondering when all u BF mummies got ur first AF (how old babies were)
    how much were u still BF then, and were u on the mini-pill?

    im on the mini-pill now, i just finished my first card, but no AF :?
    perhaps its coz im still BF :think: i BF about 4 times in 24 hours now, and express a bit in the evenings to relieve the engorgement (just started formula in afternoon & eve)

    or do u not get bleeds on mini-pill?

    I've only had 2 periods since having DS and he's breastfed, has around 3-4 feeds per 24 hours and a bottle of formula. I got my AF first of all about 10 weeks ago, so you might find that it arrives soon :)

    I am not on the mini pill either but when I was told about it I was told it's quite normal not to have a period!

    I got my first period last month, im still feeding Thea at 14 months. She gets about 3 -4 feeds a day but mainly just morning and night, the occasional feed during the day is just a quick snack type feed. I was on the mini pill from 6 weeks postpartum until my period came back and then my doctor took me off it.
