Hello all,

I am wondering how long it took for your period to come back after having your baby. I am 2 months post baby and formula feeding. Thank you in advance.

I don't even remember how long it was after my first baby. He was an emergency c-section at 29 weeks, with a host of complications for me, and he was formula fed. I do remember that I bled several months after he was born. 

With my 3 year old, he was EBF, and I had my first regular cycle about 2 months PP. With my 16 month old, also EBF, it took 4 months.

I think it really varies and really no set period.  I breat fed until DD was 3 1/2 months and I didn't get my period until after I stopped.  Don't remember a time frame.

It really can vary. Baby #1 I breastfed but got my period the following month. Baby #2 also came the next month. Breastfed baby #3 and didn't get my period until 9 months.

7 weeks pp, one week after PP bleeding stopped with my first two. I was pumping.

My third was 3 months while breastfeeding exclusively.

My fourth was 4 mouths while breastfeeding exclusively.
