i had my daughter back in Jan. she is 3 mons 1 wk old. i had a c-sec w her. had normal bleed after her delivery.. then following had some bleeding  then some spotting.. normal after birth .. but march & april no spotting or bleeding just some cramping for a couple days.. still no period now.. so i call my dr today they said can be normal but if i'm concerned to take a preg test.. my husband and i have had sex a couple times using a condom & some using nothing but he pulled out before ..

 & with my son & my baby girl only reason i knew i was preg was missed period, sore boobs, and tired.. well rt now I am EBF my daughter so hard to say if sore boobs, plus daughter is starting to teeth so some days my nipples r more sore then others but we work thru that..  tired yes but have two kids & house to take care of.. should i take a preg test or just wait see when my period comes back?

Also when do EBF babies start to have more reg BM? my daughter still has loose BM? yellowish brown or amber kind color..

My daughter was 12 months before I got my period back. That was back in January. Then I didn't have another til yesterday.

My son was.2 months old when I got a period, then I didn't get another until he was 9 months old.

Bf baby poop is that lil runny mustard seed looking, it won't change until solids are introduced. Remember bf can do wacky things to your period.

This... I didn't get my first pp af until 14 months pp. I took a dollar store pregnancy test each month just to make sure.

I had probably three periods in the 18 months after ds was born - and was an obsessive test taker lol. I ended up buying a 25 pack for 5 dollars online so I could stop wasting money. Not the fanciest but handy :)

I got my period back at almost 9 months pp but it's very irregular. It's been well over 30 days since I started so it can show up again anytime. It's normal to be irregular too after starting. I wouldn't worry unless you are showing signs of pregnancy. It also doesn't hurt to keep dollar store hpt in stock either. Lmao. We are far from careful so i random test

 I have six and exclusively breastfed all of them on demand...what you are describing sounds normal to me. Enjoy it Momma...no periods to deal with for a few more months.
