  • I believe so, I hear only the lucky women don't bleed while breastfeeding, that most breastfeeding mothers still spot at least. My experience tho, I Breastfed my son until he was two, I never had a period, BUT I got pregnant around his first birthday. My First period was AFTER my second baby was born. I couldn't breastfed him because he was allergic to milk in my diet, and had many other tummy issues, but they had me pump for 4 weeks in case we figured out a way I could breastfeed, and when it didn't work and I quit pumping my period came back. It was the heaviest, most painful period I have ever had.

    Anyways sorry about the novel of an answer, but that was my experience.

  • Yes, your period can be on hold for as long as you bf and will just come back when your body decides it's time. Mine never was on hold though.

  • Yeah mine never got regular with my daughter. That's how I got pregnant with my son. I was lucky that it came back a few months after he was born and has been pretty regular since. But sometimes, when it comes back it comes back with a vengeance.
