Spotting while breastfeeding?

I've been EBFing my son for almost three months. I bled originally for eight weeks after birth and ever since then I have been spotting every two weeks. Is this normal?

  • It doesnt sound like anything to be worried about. Not extrememly common, but just one of things that can happen, after having a baby your body will do all sorts of wierd things. It would be more likely if you are supplementing, or pumping to keep your supply up. If it becomes very painful I might call your doc but otherwise it sounds harmless.
