“I have updated my iPhone 6 Plus to latest version of iOS 9 from iOS 8. But after upgrading, I have lost all my MMS.

Practical Scenario 2
Can I recover sms and mms messages if I have never backed up my iphone?
I am completely new to the Apple family and am having a hard time understanding how the initial backup to iCloud affects my deleted iMessages, SMS, and MMS correspondences. I want to recover a group of SMS and MMS conversations that my toddler deleted…I know…I know – so green I did not even initiate the lock screen. To be honest, we don’t lock devices in our home. I have never backed-up/signed into iCloud from my iphone. I keep seeing posts about texts/pic not being “really” deleted as some can find them in a search. Is it possible to recover these at all without using thrid party software? Some part of me believes that becasue I have never backedup my phone, the deleted data is just waiting to be “dumped” into iCloud…maybe that is the illogical and sleep deprived part. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
