I breast feed and my daughter is almost 4 months. I know it depends on my body but generally when should I roughly expect my period to return?

  • It could be a while. With one of my kids, I went 18 months without a period.

  • Mine never returned until after my kids had been on solids for a while - between 9 and 12 months for all of them.

  • For my 1st baby, I didn't have one for over a year. My 2nd and 3rd babies, I had one about 8 weeks after giving birth.
