Absolutely! If she is fully EBF, that helps keep it from coming back.

Yes. I didn't have a period after my son until he was about 4 months, and never had one with my daughter, currently 5 months, before I got pregnant this time. If you are breastfeeding, it can take a year or more for it to start coming back.

Yes I didn't get a period until my son was 11 months and I wasn't on birth control.

Yes, it's normal if you breastfeed. I didn't get my period last time for a year. I'm currently 6 months PP and no period so far.

Yes. Lots of women go without a period while EBF'ing:)

I didn't get mine until last month at 11 months postpartum and I wasn't on birth control.

Yes, breastfeeding can delay periods for months.

Very normal! 2.5 months isn't all that long anyway. Breastfeeding for many women delays the return of fertility for 6-12 months and beyond, for a few the whole time they breastfeed beyond that.
Personally, mine doesn't come back until 15-16 months.
