Iregular postpartum cycles?

Is it common for your cycles to be out of wack after you have a baby? I got my period back last month but I haven't had it again this month yet and I guess you could say it's overdue (about 5 days). Is this normal?
TIA!

Yes, it's normal. If you are EBF then it can show up months apart, once and not again until you are done or every month. If you are FF then it will get back on track, usually just takes a few months to regulate itself. I wouldn't worry about 5 days, unless you have reason to.

Okay thank you! We have been really careful, but of course I worry just becuase I don't want to get pregnant again, especially not this soon!

Re: Iregular postpartum cycles?

My cycle used to be 28 days EVERY time since I started in eighth grade.....then when I had my daughter, for the first time in 12 years I didn't know when to expect it. It was sooo frustrating because our daughter was a planned pregnancy and we conceived the first month we tried. With my son I got TCOYF finally and after charting and all that good stuff we finally conceived after about the third time (still really good, but frustrating when you don't know when to expect AF and you've been used to such a pattern for sooo long). Then I think I had two cycles after my son self-weaned before we had our "surprise" happen and we are awaiting Baby No. 3 in Dec. I'm still not used to the fact that I can't say for sure when AF will show up....I guess it was just a luxury that I had counted on for so long, but is still totally normal this way too. I definetely feel your frustration on this one.....not to mention lots of $$ down the drain on pregnancy tests just to be sure.

Yes, but I haven't stopped bf'ing at all. I tried pumping and it's not really working, she maybe gets 1 bottle every couple weeks.
