  • 5-6 weeks with each of mine (I have 5). They were all 100% formula fed. With my last I actually hadn't stopped bleeding from the birth at 5 weeks. I only knew it was my period because it had slowed down and almost stopped then suddenly was bight red again and I started cramping. I was ticked because I never got a break. But once it was over everything went back to normal.
