In brief: Usu. a few months

Depending on hormonal surges and breast feeding etc, it may be a month, or it may be several.
Be cautious though, as just because you do not have an active cycle, you still may be able to get pregnant, so practice safe sex. Good luck.

In brief: Depends

If you are nursing, then it is highly variable when you will get your period.
If you are not nursing, then you will probably get your period about 6 weeks after the baby is born.
