Postpartum Period For Breast Feeding Moms

Emmie - February 13

I started my first period while br___tfeeding at 8 months. Yesterday my period should have started for this month. Unfortunately I did not start-I am starting to freak out a little bit. What my question is-are postpartum periods usually irregular. I think I'll wait at least a week to test and hopefully Ill start. I am not going to worry though if you guys know that while br___tfeeding periods are regular. Thanks in advance.

Bf can make your periods very irregular. I would not worry too much unless you are having symtoms. I did get preg while bf, but my dd was 10mos at the time and was eating a lot of table food and not nursing as much. I am now bf my second and my periods again are very irregular. (Btw, I was also on the mini pill whne I got pregnant, so I wasn't relying just on bf as a birth control option. Are you using other protection?)

I also got my first period at about 8 months.....then like 2 weeks after it stopped, I got another one! I kinda think that periods are irregular for a while.

Thanks Emily, I am using condoms so I dont know how I could get pregnant. That makes me feel much better.
