Hi Simmy

Yes, its normal to skip months too. I am still breastfeeding my 18 month old daughter, I started my periods at 6 months postpartum and had mine on and off until now. I have found that when I do have a period, it is more severe (more period pains and also longer period of time)

You might find that if you breastfeed more often, your periods disappear and if you breastfeed less, they return again...it all depends in hormones and from person to person.
