I had my baby almost 3 months ago. I had a period about 3 or 4 weeks after i had my baby. But since then i havnt had one. I have small cramps around when i should have them but nothing. I have been BF and I am a new mom Wyatt is my first baby. So I just wanted to know if this is normal. Because its throwing me off! lol

First, are you sure it was your period and not just more pp bleeding? Second, have you had unprotected sex? Third, are you exclusively breastfeeding?

Yep. Completely normal and you may not get it back until after you stop bfing. It just depends on your body.

Yeah, you could not get another one till your baby is nursing waaay less (like at 12 months) or you could start having them regular. It's all normal. I didn't get mine till 13 months pp. It was glorious. I stopped my pp bleeding completely at about 5 weeks.
