  • With my first baby I bled for the first 5 weeks and was done for a week, and then I got my first period. It's normal. They say breastfeeding mothers don't bleed as long.

  • Congtaulations first of all!! And yes, it's absolutely normal. Get used to it cuz you'll be bleeding for the next several weeks.

  • Yeah I think that's about right. It seemed like I bled forever. But I just had my first period when my baby turned 8mon. I wish I had of breast fed longer so I couldn't start my period til she was about a yr. LOL (JK)
