  • yes you can have a period while breastfeeding, actually breastfeeding will help with bloating and cramps

  •  I think it depends on how often you breastfeed.  If your not breast feeding every three to four hours that could be the reason or if you bottle and breastfeed .I breastfeed all 7 children and i didnt start my period intil they breastfeed less so about 10 mths.old.
