DD is 4mths, 3 wks. She is mix fed. 2 bottles and the rest BF each day.

When should I get a period again? Will it be when I stop BF or before as I am mix feeding.

The past couple of days, I have had what feel like very mild period pains, I am really bloated and even grumpier than usual grin

Could be tomorrow. Could be a lot longer.

DD is still BF at nearly 18 months - my first period came when she was 15 months old. I've known other women have theirs come back at 3 months with a fully BF baby and others that haven't seen a sign until they stop completely.

So no help whatsover, really

Usually it is when the gaps between feeds lengthen. Especially at night.

There's no way of knowing. I was one of the ones who got mine back whilst feeding every couple of hours day and night when dd was very small.
