Usually,return to normal menstrual pattern takes 1-6 months after delivery, especially when feeding the baby. Feeling of tiredness could be due to general nutritional deficiencies added to the task of baby sitting. You should have a visit to your doctor to confirm all is well. Do not worry about getting a period if everything else is fine as getting into normal routine may take time sometimes. Eat well and sleep well. Take care.
