My daughter is 6 weeks and 2 days old, I only breastfeed her and yet my period started yesterday. How is that fair/possible?

No, It's not fair but normal. If this is your second, that might be the reason . Check with a La Leche league group. They could tell you more. They do have a web site, I just checked. Each person and pregnancy are usually different. With my second I had to quit because of illness after 2 months. Keep a dairy or if you don't have time to write, get one the voice activated recorders. And, tape it when your kids a grown and going throught this, you will have something to share. I wish that stuff had been available in the late sixties. Plus with two you will not have the time, as with the first for all the pictures and baby book entrees good luck and have fun..
