how long after you have a baby do you get your period?

I don't breast feed. I had my little girl 6 weeks ago and don't remember how long it is before I get my period.

  • Well, I breast fed. So that will change things. But my oldest was 5 months old when I got pregnant with my second, and I didn't get a period between them. After the youngest, I think it was about 5 or 6 months...

  • I nursed my son and didn't get a period until the month before he turned two years old.

  • When Aunt Flo decides she misses you. ANY time. Be prepared. She usually shows when it's least convenient.
