  • i'm guessing that the baby is pretty young still? after giving birth your body needs time to adjust back to normal. your hormones probably aren't back to normal yet and are just trying to adjust.

  • I did that also with my first two babies. It balanced out after the baby was 3 months old and I had a regular period every 29 days. Then I got pregnant when my first baby was 10 months old and again when my second baby was 10 months old.
