Periods returning whilst breastfeeding

so my little one is 19 weeks old today and exclusively breast fed. He feeds a minimum of 8 times in 24 hours, usually more. My first period post pregnancy arrived yesterday which i was quite surprised at as I thought it wouldn't happen until I reduced breast feeding at around 6 months when starting to wean. Is this normal?

  • Yeah I am also only breast feeding, and mine returned 5 weeks after she was born. I have had 2 and she's only 3 months! Don't worry. X
