  • How long after your last time breastfeeding... should you get your period? I haven't bf'ed for a little over a month and I still haven't gotten my first period since I got pregnant. Anyone know what the ETA for AF?

  • it varies from person to person.
    But I would guess an average for a person around 3 months post partum that has just quit nursing would get their period in 6-8 weeks.

  • I'm with the girls Each person is different. AF found me at 9 months pp and I'm still nuring. With our first DD, AF arrived 6 months pp and I nursed her for 13 months. So everyone is different.

  • Good question, April! And as the other ladies have already said, it does vary. I've nursed all 4 of my kids for different periods of time but AF always showed up whenever she felt like it. When I had Ryan, she'd show up if I gave him a bottle of formula but that doesn't happen when Nicholas takes formula or bottles.
