I have known people to get their period back at 6 weeks while exclusively nursing twins... and people that do not get their period back at until until their child is fully weaned (the one I know best weaned all of hers at 10-18 months)... even if their child is also supplemented w/ formula and eating solids.

Breastfeeding is not birth control, so if you are sexually active w/out using condoms or another form of birth control the likelihood of pregnancy is always a possibility. But simply not getting your period back while you are still nursing is normal for many women.

Yes, that can be normal. You are still fertile even if you don't get your period, so you want to make sure you are not pregnant. But some women do not get their period until they have stopped breastfeeding.
