    I'm breastfeeding too and only had my first one at 7 months, but I'm not sure if the changes in hormones from your pills will mean you'll have them after every pack - when did you start taking them? x

    Just reading through the experiences of other mommies recently, there is no rule as to when it will arrive. Some will have it right after the postnatal bleeding and some will later on, and I've found that often even bottlefeeding moms will have it later on.

    Not had mine yet and gave up breastfeeding at six weeks, so I have no idea.
