    i think when you stop breatfeeding completely, or reduce the breast feeds then you will have a period. Lucky you thou going all this time without them!! bet youve missed them!!!!!! lol maybe not!! :wink:

    i didn't breastfeed but it took over eight weeks for my period to come back. i know that breastfeeding can prolong this so i wouldn't necessarily expect to come anytime soon. maybe once your milk starts to dry up and your homones start settling. try not to worry and enjoy it while it lasts!!

    Hi,

    Have read it's when you cut out feeding altogether or with hardly any feeds and it can take a couple of months after you stop or cut back.
