  • For me it was about 7 weeks after I had my son. I only breastfeed for three weeks. I have heard if you breastfeed it sometimes takes longer to start.

  • Six weeks on the dot with all three of my kids. I wish I was one of those lucky ladies that don't their cycle when they are breastfeeding, but no I got mine right away.
