Post How long after baby before 1st period

My son has just turned 4 months and my period has not returned. I am breastfeeding but he is now eating cereal and sleeping 9 - 10 hours at night. Any ideas? My husband and I would like to have another baby soon so they are close together.

Let me know

Thanks, Kathy

Your period could be delayed because of breast feeding. Are you sure that you are not pregnant right now? Usually after you stop bleeding from delivery you have a cycle like normal. One month after you stop bleeding. Breastfeeding can some times hinder getting pregnant but is not a sure fire birth control method. Maybe you should test if you haven't yet. Good luck with the results!

Hello! most women resumme with a normal cycle any where from 6-8 weeks after she delivers. I breast fed and my af arrived 4 weeks after I gave birth but not all breastfeeding moms get their period back until they stop breastfeeding. I would call your doctor if you have any concerns of being pg again so he can do a blood test and maybe you can start from there. Good luck
