  • My first I didn't (because of breast feeding) But My second was born Dec 13th. I bled for the 4-6 weeks after, then got my first period Jan 22. I really only had one weekend without bleeding. lol Because I never had one with my first I didn't know what it would be like with my second, and it sucked!! I was going through super pads and tampons by the hour. I had to wear both because I bled so much. But they got lighter by the third period and less painful.

  • 6 weeks with my first two babies and I was EBF. I'm at 6 months PP and haven't gotten my period yet after my 3rd baby, but I'm BFing again.
