  • 4 weeks. It doesn't necessarily make a difference if your breastfeeding or not though. (I breastfed). Breastfeeding helps your uterus contract back to normal size faster, generally, but many women still bleed 3-4 weeks.

    I didn't get my period until 13 months postpartum though, that was nice!
