  • yes you can bleed off and on for about 6 weeks. But if it is really really heavy like more then 2 pads on one hour call your doctor

  • I stopped 4 hours after having my daughter and then started again when she was 5 weeks old and it lasted about 16 days then and stopped, it was a pretty moderate to heavy flow.

  • yes, totally normal. Your body will probably do this for a few months before it regulates itself again.
