Is it normal for me to have gotten my period so early after having my son?

I thought that it would be longer. I only had my son 3 months ago and I'm breastfeeding. Am I not feeding him enough? hes puting on weight like crazy my doctor says hes doing great.

Everyone is different, I got mine back 4 weeks from when the after birth bleeding stopped with 2 out of three and 4 months after with my youngest. Some people don't have periods while breastfeeding some do. There is nothing worry about.

Every woman is different. I was exclusively nursing my son and my period came back at 2.5 months.... and every month since.

Some women start back up by 6 weeks (like my friend who was exclusively nursing twins) and some don't get it back until after they wean.
