  • Breastfeeding can mess with your periods. It's nothing to worry about. It's harder (but not impossible) to get pregnant while nursing.

  • Most breastfeeding mothers do not get a period any soon. Some women who supplement with formula atleast once a day, have reported to have got period regularly after that, not all though!
    Breastfeeding also provides about 40% protection against further pregnancies.

  • It's been as much as six months for me, breastfeeding, without a period. If you're concerned, buy a HPT. :)
