I'm bottle feeding my 11week old baby and have done since she was born. I bled for 5-6 week after she was born. I still haven't had a period though. Is this normal?

Hiya Fayebelle

yep, totally normal. Soem women seem to get them immediately, some take months and months. Breastfeeding is supposed to hold them off longer, although I fed for 3 months and had 1st period 5 weeks after giving birth, so there's always odd ones. Average seems to be about 3 months or so.

Just make sure you've not missed it cos ur pregnant again Wink

Thanks for your reply, I thought it might be normal but just needed a bit of advice... As you do!
Gosh, I don't know how I'd feel if I was pregnant again... I was stopping at two so I could get my hip replacement. I think I'll check, stressing might keep it away longer! I only wanted it to arrive so I could start my pill.
