there is no such thing as a 'normal' time for your period to return after giving birth...
there are alot of factors that effect it...
1) breastfeeding vs bottle feeding
2) type of delivery
3) whether you had regular cycles before you feell pregnant.
having said that generally speaking its around either the 12 week mark or once you stop feeding. your period can also come back once then go away again... and can also be very irregular for the first year or so.
mine returned at 9 weeks after my c-section and i was fulling breastfeeding... they have come every 6 weeks since!
