No period while breastfeeding

My baby is almost 12 weeks old and I am exclusively breastfeeding her. I haven' t had a period yet - is this because I am breastfeeding or does it take a while for your period to come back?
With my son, I remember my period starting sooner than this (I was also breastfeeding him)

It is likely to be because you are breastfeeding.
