I got period back when first bub was 4 months and second bub was 5 months. Bub 3 is 6 weeks today and i'm still bleeding, i wouldn't worry about it yet give your hormones another month or two to settle back to normal

Hey,
  I'm not sure why my periods were so delayed, but iit was nice not having one for a while.  I think your body just adjusts after having a baby.  I know that when you breastfeed your body produces small amounts of oxytocin, which may be why you don't get a period while you breastfeed.  It may be due to hormones that you don't get a period for a while after having given birth.  I'm not really sure what delays periods.  A doctor may be better equipped to answer this question.  All I know is that it is normal not to get a period for a while after having a baby.

I had my third baby Feb. 9th. I bleed for about 6 weeks and now I'm good. I don't expect my period for a while. I didn't get my period for almost 6 months after my second child was born and about 4 months after my first baby. If you are breastfeeding your period can be delayed for a while.
