  • Bloody like your period and mucusy with little or no color or odor are normal for a long long time after birth. Longer than you would think, weeks. Its like the body has been saving up for nine months (which it has).

    Puss like, smelly, or green, and increasing amounts are all bad signs, call your doctor.
