Irregular periods while breastfeeding?

I had my daughter March 24.  I am only breast feeding her. I got my first period Aug 4, Sept 10, and its Oct 21 and still no period. I am kind of worried. Should I be, or is it normal to have irregular periods? Thanks.

Hi,

it's quite normal to have irregular periods when you are breastfeeding.  I've just had my third.  Since my baby was born in January.  First was at 6 months, second was at 8 months (60 days) and third just came at 35 days.

Of course you also could be pregnant.  So if you aren't using birthcontrol that is a possibility.  You coudl test for that.

Thanks, I thought it was normal,  just wasn't 100% sure.  I guess if I want to know, test for sure.
