It depends on each individual and how much you are breastfeeding. Some women won't get it until they start weaning, some will have it randomly, and some will have it like normal. Same goes for ovulation so I would not count on breastfeeding as a means of birth control.
I know more women who have gotten pregnant while breastfeeding before their periods came back so you definitely want to be careful with that one. I am breastfeeding but I also supplement with formula. My baby wasn't gaining weight fast enough so I started adding in formula about 2 months ago. She will be 4 months next week. I think it really is different for everybody.
I had really irregular periods like on time I went 4 months without one so who knows what mine will be like after the baby and ya I want a second child after this one but a year or two later lol not right away so I wont be on birth control until after my 2nd baby
