  1. Good morning M/s Aminder.Since your baby is breast fed period might be delayed but that does not always gurantee that you will not conceive during this period so take precaution during sex.
    Try to gradually wean the baby from breast feeding and slowly add cereals etc.
    Continued breast feeding for a prolonged period causes uterus to shrink and might cause irregularities in period later on.
    Best wishes.
