breastfeeding and periods
I’m 8 weeks post c-section and have been breastfeeding successfully since then.
My lochia finally stopped last week and I had thought it started again this week but it’s more period like than watery discharge. Plus I’ve had mild cramps and that worthless/sad feeling i often got during my periods pre-pregnancy.
My baby is starting to sleep between 5 to 7 hours a night regularly now, and I haven’t been waking to pump as I’ve loved the sleep and extra energy it’s giving me.
Are the two linked? I assumed my period wouldn’t start again till after I’d stopped breastfeeding. Does anyone know if having a period will impact my milk supply at all?
