    Hi babi 77,
    I got my period after 9 months of breastfeeding. I posted a thread called "postpartum menstruation" under the family health forum. Sarah gave some excellent information regarding this, and its perfectly normal. Check it out.

    I got my period when my daughter was 10 months and I'm still breastfeeding. I'm not too sure, but I heard that when your baby is sleeping solidly without a feed for 6 hrs straight, your period starts. Has anyone else heard this before?

    Yes I've heard that if your baby sleeps for 6 hours without a feed, then your periods come back. With my own son I don't really remember if he slept that long but my periods also came back when he was just 3 months old. I remember being shocked as well as disappointed !

    Really? :) This is the first time I heard about it.

    I got mine when my baby was 2 months old and still breastfeeding.
