First period 6 weeks post partum, then nothing

I gave birth a couple of months ago and I exclusively breastfeed.  With my first 2 children who were also EBF I did not get a period for months and when they came they were very light and short for the first few cycles.  This time I got a pretty normal period at about 6 weeks and now it is day 35 and still nothing.. My cycles before pregnancy were between 26-30 days. 

Has anyone else experienced this?  To have a period and then nothing.. I did not even have a complete cycle yet so I do not know what would be considered normal post-pregnancy.

Please let me know if you or someone you know has had this happen.  Thanks :)

It might have been post partum bleeding, I still had some at 6 weeks (after a week break). Then my first period came back at 11 months, this time.

Yep, I stopped bleeding for about 3 weeks then bled for another few days.  At 8 months I still haven't gotten my period.

ok.. maybe.. I stopped bleeding at about 4 weeks post partum and the last week or so was very little.. 2 weeks nothing then like 6 days of bleeding..  I hope that's all it is..

My post partum bleeding stopped and started constantly up to 10-12 weeks.
