Irregular cycles after childbirth

Hi everyone,

I'm currently almost six months postpartum.

My baby boy has been exclusively formula fed since 3 months (mixed feeding before that).

My periods returned 8 weeks after birth, but my cycles have been quite irregular.

First cycle: 39 days
Second cycle: 32 days
Third cycle: 24 days

I'm quite worried about this, as we'd like to have a second child and I wonder if this is normal.

Is anyone else experiencing this /has any advice?

Thanks xx

Absolutely normal don’t be worried at all

Thanks, I was a bit concerned as I'm formula feeding now and I thought with formula feeding your cycles should be regular?
