Every woman's body is different. Maybe for you feeding 3 times during the day and however many times at night is all it takes to keep AF away. If you are concerned about pregnancy, buy some dollar store pregnancy tests. Those are my best suggestions with the info you have provided. :)

I didn't get my period back until about 7ms after my son was born, but we do exclusive breastfeeding, until now.
You do know that the pull out method is not effective... there is sperm that comes out before he fully ejaculates. Just a heads up.
