  • Yes. You will be out of whack for a while between hormones returning to normal from pregnancy anc breast feeding. BTW you are so lucky! I had my period back in 6 weeks both times even when I was EBF!

  • yes, your period may be absent or irregular while breastfeeding. some women don't get a period while they're bf, and other super lucky mommas like me get their period back regular at 6 weeks pp. it's all normal lol
