Not quite bfing over a year as my baby is nearly 12 months, still bfing but he stopped the night feeds about 6 months for a while (started again now though) and my AF returned at 7 months but I've only had two cycles in 4 1/2 months.

Mine came back at 11 months even though he feeds through the night.
I'm not sure if there is any pattern to it after so long but maybe as she feeds a regularly your body doesn't realise she is feeding less? My AF is regular on a normal cycle now (oh how I longed for this when ttc-ing, now I miss my long cycles )

Mine was back at 9 months with #2 despite him feeding regularly day and night until well beyond one. No sign this time yet at 9 months, yet she is a far less frequent feeder already!

Mine came back at 7 months with my first 2 and 8 months with my 3rd. S still feeds throughout the night so I was hoping it would be a bit longer this time but no such luck

Bloody 3 months!! and he fed through the night until over a year old, often every 2 hours. Huge grumps! Only plus point for us was that it meant we conceived first month of trying when we were ready for no.2 (he was about 10 months when we conceived).

7 months! And we were still feeding during the night!

So seems mine are taking an age to come back... at what point should I start to worry?

I fed exclusively for 6 months but mine, annoyingly came back at 5 months! I know someone's whose didn't come back till their child was 18 months. Not sure if there's much a gp can do but if you're really concerned you could make an appointment to discuss it. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about

Between 10-12 months with all three of them, all still feeding often and at night. I wouldn't worry about it not being back, I think it's quite normal x

At 13 months. She was still feeding at night then but had discovered life was quite exciting in the day so wasnt feeding much in daytime .. although she did start to eat quite well at this point too
My best mate AF return at 4 weeks with her 4th baby, despite BFing, she was mighty peed off!
