When did your period come back after having a baby? I'm at 11 months.

11 months post baby and still no period. I breastfeed a lot still, but it just seems like it's been a long time.

  • with my first I bled for the whole 6 weeks and then I think I stopped for about 3 weeks then I got my period back. With my second I bled 4 weeks and started back up at 2 weeks

  • Mine came back at 15 months, and I had stopped pumping for my son 2 months earlier. My daughter is 8 months old, and I'm BFing and no period yet.

  • 5 weeks with both, one formula-fed, one breastfed. I'm one of the lucky ones (sarcasm)...

    It's not unusual for breastfeeding mothers not to get their period for a while. Some get it immediately after post-partum bleeding stops, others get it when they cut back on nursing (baby starts sleeping through the night, introduce solids, start supplementing, etc.), and still many more don't get it until months after they've weaned completely. And anything in between. It's all normal.
