I was bleeding on and off till about 4 weeks after giving birth, then I had about 10 days without any bleeding.
I'm now 6 weeks postpartum, and started bleeding again four days ago, slowly at first, and now very heavy and red. I haven't really had any period pain, could this be my period? I'm mix feeding, so not exclusively bf.
Could be, or could be that you are doing too much (see daily tip on right for my recommendations on the subject ) If it doesn't smell offensive and you have no other symptoms it's probably okay to wait and see what happens in another four weeks
My first post partum period (actually my first in four years ah the joy of breastfeeding and getting pregnant while doing so!) was very heavy. Apparently anything is normal for the first few periods after you have a baby
No bloody help to you I know but you are not alone in suffering heavy bleeding after having a baby.
I'd love to tell you it gets better too but my periods have now done a bunk again! They are probably waiting for it to be warm enough for me to wear white linen trousers
