period while nursing
by: Tracy

Hi!

Yes, it is completely normal. Your hormones during breastfeeding can differ from time to time, which is what causes you to have a period and then maybe skip it a few times.

Personally I have had a roller coaster ride where this is concerned. I got my period at four months after my baby was born, then I would have heavy periods for three months, then skip one get one, then I would bleed for longer than usual and spot some months, right now I haven't had a period again for two months...so yes...when it comes to your period while breastfeeding, anything is normal.

Most moms that I know and have spoken to, say they got there period while they where breastfeeding, not everyone has the advantage of "no period" while breastfeeding.
