I can't even remember when my periods started again, think it was after about 6 months. I have no idea if they are regular, I should really keep track of them!

B/fed both my kids till 13 months, periods started at 11 months both times and were - still are - fairly regular as before.

Friend breastfed too and hers came back after 6 weeks, so you never can tell.

Regular and just as heavy as before (eugh) exactly a month after the birth even with breastfeeding, I went straight from lochia to period and then they just kept coming, had very confusing cycles though!

Started again immediately I stopped breastfeeding (6 1/2 mths) and have been more regular, though last for a lot longer now (8 as opposed to 4 days)
