My bubby is almost 10 months old and I still haven’t had my period back (not that I’m complaining). Just wondering when other mums got theirs back? Bubba is still feeding frequently through the night with no sign of slowing any time soon :|

  • I got mine back after 3months for both my babies, I wasn’t breastfeeding but I full time expressed.

  • After the initial post birth bleed it took me almost seven months. I figured my body would kick into gear when it was ready. That was at the end of last year and they’re like clockwork again now.

  • When breastfeeding it can be anytime. With my first two it was 6 weeks and with my third it was 10 weeks. Unless you are trying to conceive just sit back and enjoy it!!! ????

  • First Bub I got 8 weeks after having her, second but is now almost four months old and o haven’t got them but I also have the implanon in and endometriosis which can cause you to not have a period for months.

  • I got mine 6 weeks after bubs was born even though i was breast feeding this happened to me with all three of my kids… With one of my friends she didnt get hers back as it turned out she was pregnant again.. She found out when she was 6 months along..

  • I had a few small ones about 3 weeks later but they only lasted sometimes 2 days at the most. About 10 months after i got them as normal again

  • 12 months after bub but i BF baby till 2 years

  • I think my daughter was about 3 months

  • Mine didn’t and 3,5 month after my daughter was born I was pregnant with my son. My daughter was prem and so little and I remember it was a bit of a shock to be pregnant again.

  • Mine were around 10 months old and I was breastfeeding regularly through day and night.

  • A friend of mine got pregnant while breastfeeding and hadn’t had a period.
    She thought she was “safe”

  • Haven’t got mine back yet (touch wood) hoping it stays away for atleast a year :-) as long as you are still feeding, any luck it won’t return in a hurry :-)

  • I breastfed all four of my kids but got my period within two months after each pregnancy. I think it’s different for everyone but I remember being so annoyed at how quickly mine returned.

  • My periods came back when I breastfed 3 times per day

  • It varies but my babies were approx 5 months old
