You can start it now. That's what my ob had me do but I also have a history of only having periods every 6 to 12 months so it doesn't make sense to wait.

I'd call your on and see what they want you to do.

I was also told I could start it that following sunday after my doctor visit.

I was also told I could start taking them before my period returned. I had a baby born in December also and my period didn't return until April.

 I too was told I could start them right away. I didn't get my first period until 7 months after getting that birth control.

You can start now.  If your breastfeeding make sure it's a pill that's compatable with breastfeeding first though...some bc can dry up your milk.
