  • About 2 weeks. Nicole
  • Fed 2.5yrs come back after 3 months Brook
  • My son is 18 months and I started weaning the breast feeds to bottles at 9 months and completely stopped by 10 as I went back to work. I still haven’t had mine 😕 after reading comments maybe I should be a bit more worried that it still has not returned Shari
  • Its been almost 8 months since i stopped bf and i still dont have mine back, starting to get worried (im 100% not pregnant) Hannah
  • Took 3 months for me Monica
  • it took about 6 weeks each time, with me. stopped BF at 8.5 months old, with the first, 5 months exactly with the seccond, and 3 months with the third, its six weeks later now, and sure enough my period started 3 days ago. Its likely different for every one, but I hope this helps you Alice
