3 months and I’m exclusively breastfeeding :woman_facepalming:

I breastfed until my boys self weaned at 4 months. My periods started back about the time they slowed down on feedings.

Breastfeeding and 1 month all four times.

About 2 months while breastfeeding and supplementing due to low milk supply.

I got my tubes done after my 4 th it took like 5 months to get a period and I wasn’t breast feeding

Both times I had postpartum bleeding for 6 weeks and at week 8 I got my regular cycles back. I breastfed both times as well.

When I had my son it took me about 2ish months.

After my first baby was born I never got my period back, I found out I was pregnant when he was 11 months old. Now after baby number 2 I’m still waiting and He’s 8 months. Breastfeeding the whole time.
