  • Anything is "normal" while breastfeeding... or you might be pregnant. Theres no way to tell unless you take a test.

  • Yeah, I got pregnant while breastfeeding, even with an irregular cycle. Just take a test to make sure, then if still nothing, see a dr! Are you any hormonal bc? The pills helps regulate cycles, if you need to go there, thats a good option. Good luck!

  • I didn't get my period until 6.5 months after I had her.....while BF-ing. I didn't get it until she started wanting a bottle and not a boob. Now its whenever it's all in your hormones!!!!!

  • Breastfeeding causes changes in your ovulation. A good percentage of people DON'T get their period while they breastfeed because of this. If you're majorly concerned, always check with your doctor.
