Period after baby...
sdadkin posted:
I know that every body is different, but when is it normal to get your first period after having a baby? My son was born May 3rd and I breastfed him up until 3 and half weeks ago. Since then I have been cramping a lot, but still no period. I would think that since I stopped bf that my period should be back by now.

I have had 2 periods since I had my son, he is almost one year old. I breastfed part-time up until a week ago and have been only nursing once a day for a couple months...I have had lots of cramping for a few weeks and I swear any day I will get my period, but nothing! Its frustrating but I think pretty normal.
