What is normal?

I just had my baby 2wks ago and it seems that my flow is still coming. Its stops for a day and then picks up again. This is my 4th baby and I seriously don't remember any of this! lol But then again its been 7yrs since my last baby. My ? is how long does it normally take for the flow to slow right down to an almost stop??

  • i think its different for everyone. my post partum flo only lasted me 2 weeks out of the 6 with my last baby no slowing down and nothing really bad, with my older daughter it was a hard period for 2 weeks straight and then off a week and on the rest of the time.
