how long was it before you had your period after baby?

My baby is 2 1/2 months old...Im still breastfeeding and I havent had a normal period. Just wondering when I can expect it.

  • With my first two I did not get a period until I stopped breastfeeding them. With my third I got my period after he was 6 months old. I was still breastfeeding.

  • do you mean how long it takes to regulate because you are on your period when you leave the hospital.

  • I nursed both my babies. However I got pregnant with #2 when my oldest was just 5 months old. I never got a period between them. But the little one was about 4 months old when I got it after him.
