  • Are you nursing full time?

  • This would be normal if you are breastfeeding.

  • If you are not nursing I would do some research and consult your physician.

  • HI, This is normal, be glad don't have to deal with it. Especially this is expected if you are breastfeeding often enough. My son is 6 years old, and I just got my first period a couple months ago. By the way he weaned himself from nursing at 5 years and 9 months old. So I had no period for about 7 years. It was wonderful! And now I don't even have cramps, my period is pretty good except I get a headache during that week.
