Hi all
I am 31 year old and have 2 baby boys- 1 is 5+ and the other is 7 months old. My first delivery was normal and resumed my regular period in 2 months. However my second baby was a C-section. I am breast feeding my second baby. My problem is, i have not recvd my period after giving birth to second one- is this normal?

Yes it is normal. I didn't start having my period until about 5 months after my son was born via c section, and my daughter was born via vbac, and it was almost a year. It takes a while for your body to re-acclimate itself. Don't fret, but do use protection because even though you are not getting a period, you can still get pregnant.

Very normal,my son will be 6months on the 24th and I only had my period after getting back to from the hospital. Once he started nursing sufficiantly my periods stoped and I haven't seen them since.My doctor said possibly I will only see them when I stop breastfeeding and ofcourse I welcome this with open arms.
