Breast feeding and periods
My little angel is 5 1/2 months old already (I cannot believe it). I have returned to work - how sad - and expressing once at work during the day (I work from 9h30 to 15h15). I feed LO during the night and in the morning.

I was just wondering - not that it bothers me - when does your period return when you are breast feeding?

You may not have periods at all till you stop breastfeeding. If you are on contraception, such as Microval, this can also result in your not having periods.
