Your Body May Need Nine Months (Or More) To Feel Normal Again
They say it takes about nine months to make a baby, so it can take nine months for your body to go back to your pre-baby self. If you're still breastfeeding at this point, it may feel like it takes even longer for your hormones to fully regulate. And, the medical recommendation is 18 months between pregnancies to allow yourself to fully recover. So, give yourself grace in the meantime.
