Spotting?

I started Flo on solids about a week ago she had in total 5 meals over 4 days but became constipated so I stopped and carried on just BF her on the advise of a BF counsellor. Anyway she is hungry and the weather means she is wanting milk more and more so I will start again tomorrow and just finger foods.


How long after weaning did your cycles come back as I seem to be spotting today? is that normal? between M and Flo I didn't have an AF ?(

Mine came back very quickly after stopping BF with Plum, but that was only once I had fully stopped. That may not help.

weird eh? I would of thought once she was having a regular amount of meals per day and cutting out feeds it would/ may start again but as I have never really had a normal regular cycle without meds it's seems even odder still ?(

Hey, with my eldest, my period started exactly 6 months after his birth, and I was still b/feeding until 10 months with him (started with baby rice etc at 16 weeks on advice of HV as he was a hungry Horace!).
With my youngest I started period only 3 - 4 months after his birth, despite b/feeding him until 14 months (started solids at 5 months so was still exclusively b/feeding when period started...very annoying...could have used a bit longer with AF on holiday!!!).

Chili - I was a bit like Mayo - periods came back regularly every 28-30 days about 5 months after both births despite 100% BF (no solids). The first time I thought it was because I was working & pumping and the stimulation wouldnt be so high as natural BF. The second time I was still on my vacation after my short maternity leave so fully 100% BF, and still got it.

I'm now on the Implanon on the offchance DH & I can find time / will / desire to you-know-what :8o: :snigger: I love my two boys very much but I am exhausted by them, and do not want a third child so close to these two (also medically it wouldnt be sensible after 2 very close c-sections).

We too have decided that we are complete :D I was on the mini pill but omg it turned me into a monster so I came off a while ago, not sure what to do now as was not expecting this to happen ?(

It's also not a full blown AF although I did get ov pains a few weeks back so may just be very light.
