I stopped breastfeeding when my baby is 21 months old cause she's starting childcare. and also my period is very regular. and I got pregnant when my baby stopped breastfeeding.. 😅

I’m exclusively pumping too and i had my menses back ard the 5th month… cos i was extending the pump intervals…. My gynae did tell me that irregular pumping will result in menses returning lol 😂 i guess that’s what happened to me
