When does menstrual period return after giving birth? I exclusively breastfed for 3 months. Baby is now  19 weeks old and I have not had a period yet.

No worries: The breast feeding releases a hormone (prolactin) that may naturally inhibit your ovaries and uterus from preparing for another child-you deserve a break -and thank you for breast feeding:the benefits are immense on many different levels. -. ...Read more

Haven't had my period yet after delivering. My baby is 3 mo. I'm not pregnant. It's my 2nd child.. Is this ok? Was breastfeeding until 1.5 month..

Menses: The first menstrual cycle after pregnancy is very variable. They can vary from appearing 1 month after delivery to not getting one until the mom has stopped breastfeeding. No cause for concern, but dont underestimate your fertility, good contraception should be used. Just because you dont get a period doesnt mean you can not get pregnant! ...Read more

My son is 6 weeks & 4 days old, He's Bottle fed since birth. Im now taking interest in breastfeeding him but I smoke. Since I smoke is it harmful?

My son is 6 weeks & 4 days old, He's Bottle fed since birth. Im now taking interest in breastfeeding him but I smoke. Since I smoke is it harmful?

No, it's not harmful: Breastfeeding is helpful in preventing respiratory illnesses in babies who live in homes where there is smoking. Try to smoke as little as possible, which is good for you and your baby. Also try to not smoke in the same room as the baby. It might be difficult to start breastfeeding at 6 weeks. A lactation consultant might be helpful in getting your baby to latch and increasing your milk supply ...Read more

Dark green loose poop since 2 days for 2 month old baby. She is under nan 1 baby formula from birth since I have less breast milk. Is it ok?

Yes: The color of the stool reflects how quickly it passes through her digestive tract. Loose is OK unless you are dealing with frequent diarrhea. White stool or blood in the stool are problems. Green and loose are OK. ...Read more

Period returned - baby is 8 m old. Can i still breastfeed her?

Period returned - baby is 8 m old. Can i still breastfeed her?

Of course!: It is common for women to regain their periods while breast-feeding. It usually happens after the baby has been on a regular feeding schedule for a while or when other foods are introduced into the baby's diet. Usually women make a little less breastmilk when they are menstruating, but most often production is matched with the baby's needs. ...Read more

Just had a baby, still no period and it's been 11 weeks old. How much longer?

Just had a baby, still no period and it's been 11 weeks old. How much longer?

Depends: Are you breast feeding? If so, that may be normal for you. Some 45 year old women go right into menopause after they deliver. If you fail to have a cycle in the next month and you are not breast feeding, see your provider and do a pregnancy test, especially if you are not using contraception. ...Read more

My baby is 8 months old and I still haven't gotten my period again. Stopped breast feeding at  4 months. On mini pill. Not pregnant. Is this normal?

Probably so: When it comes to variation in menses following child birth, there are many variations, including the one you describe. The main thing here is that you rule out pregnancy, as you are more fertile during this time. ...Read more

I am pregnant in week 22 and seem time I have baby 1yr old , i didn't stop breat feeding her till now eventhough no.Milk coming ?Is it dangerous

Not necessarily: Think of the process as feeding twins. If the older kid is only there for the comfort & nurturing you may want to try some other nurturing activities to see if the older kid will quit. S/he may reject the breast when baby comes because the new milk flow may startle him.If not breast feed them both. ...Read more

Normal: Breastfeeding *may* delay ovulation and periods after pregnancy, but it is certainly not a reliable birth control method. If you are resuming sexual relations after your pregnancy, make sure you are using an effective birth control method. ...Read more

My 5 months baby still not pooping for 2 days now she's a breast feeding baby.

My 5 months baby still not pooping for 2 days now  she's a breast feeding baby.

Common finding: Breast babies can do a little smear every feed or a onsie filler every 7-10 days. Breast milk is a well designed food source compared to formula, where more debris is left over after processing. Bottle babies usually go at least daily if not more often. If it is soft when they go it is considered ok, even if delayed. ...Read more
