Getting Your Period While Breastfeeding

violet928 - September 28

My first period was shorter than usual but slightly heavy and in fact after I posted my question I did not have another period for 4 or 5 months. My baby was still nursing until she was 10 21/2 months and one day she just lost interest and wanted a bottle, weird because she was always the baby the refused a bottle of any kind. Anyway once she switched I started having regular periods, my least favorite aspect of being a woman. To sum it up periods while nursing are normal for some women and do not affect your ability to nurse your baby. During first day of period supply may slow slightly but not dramatically. There are supplements you can take to increase milk production, talk to your doctor about taking supplements before trying anything. The most important factor that affects milk production is staying well hydrated and eating healthy, your baby is eating what you eat so choose wisely.
