    Unhappy Starting period again--too soon??

    My DS is 8 weeks old, exclusively BF 8-9 times a day and I think I'm getting my period! I BF my DD exclusively and didn't get my period for 9 mos. Does anyone have experience getting their period this soon while breastfeeding exclusively?? Am I doing something wrong with bf my son?

    Lots of women get their period back while exclusively breastfeeding. It's perfectly normal. Some are just luck and don't get theirs back the entire time they are nursing.
