    Casen nursed exclusivly (minus solids) until 7mo then had some formula and breastmilk until 11mo, I didn't get it until he was 11mo

    Hayden exclusively nursed until 18mo but at 15mo he was eating alot and drinking some water and rice milk so he cut himself back to 1-2 feeds a day and I got it back then

    Ok AF I'm guessing that means period?? sorry for being stupid but what does AF stand for exactly?? and is there a connection with breastfeeding and having irregular periods? thanks ladies x

    I am fully breastfeeding (Feeding every 2 to 3 hours still) Mine returned at exactly 28 days after having Emie. I have just started my second like clockwork - started at exactly 28 days after my last! Not fair! :hissy:
