Some breastfeeding mothers resume their menstrual cycle sooner than 11 weeks and others after 24 months or more. It's all related to hormones and the differences in nursing "styles" of the mother and baby.
Usually, an earlier return of menses is attributed to one or more of the following: baby sleeping through the night, starting baby on solid foods, weaning, bottle and/or pacifier use, and changes in frequency and duration of nursing.
if you're breastfeeding, you might enjoy many more menses-free months — especially if you're nursing exclusively. Still, your period will return eventually — and it could make its appearance even if you're breastfeeding. And though there's absolutely no reason to pull the nursing plug once your period does resume, your baby may react to the event with a bit of fussing (while you're menstruating, you might experience a temporary drop in milk supply and the taste of your milk might change slightly due to hormonal changes).
