period after pregnancy
Since most of us had our baby in june im just curious who has started their first period? I had my son june 8th and i bled on and off heavy than very light until july 10th. Im just wondering about when i should expect my period. About 2 days ago i had spotting and nothing since. I am nursing about 80%.

I had spotting too after my bleeding stopped. I think it was about 7-8 weeks after I had my baby. I am bfing most of the time. I only bottle feed when I go out so that's maybe about 2-3 times a week that I bottle feed. I think it just depends on how your body hormones regulate.

My period came back 7 weeks after I had my baby. It only lasted for 3 days. I breastfeed exclusively. I've read some people didn't get their period back until they stopped breastfeeding I wasn't so lucky lol.

I've read that spotting is normal with insertion of  mirena. And some people still sort of get there period with it and some don't have one at all.
