IS spotting off and on normal while breastfeeding?

My DD is 8 months old and I have been spotting here and there for several weeks. The first time it was a brownish discharge and lasted only overnight. 3 weeks later I had bright red bleeding for about 8 hours (very Light). Here we are about 3 weeks later and I have brownish spotting again but this time it's a little heavier. Is this normal? When I nursed my first daughter AF returned when she was 13 months old but it was like a normal period, not just spotting here and there.

  • My baby is 3 months old and I have spotting about every 2-3 weeks, I think it's normal... I'm not worried anyway.
