 Ok these are the things I know for a fact. Breast feeding does mess with your periods because Ive skipped a few of them freaking I was pregnant. You could always go to the doctor and they can give you something to make them stop. Are you on birth control? Ive had 2 periods in a month and that was twice in my life. Are you stressed ? because that can also affect them too.

I've heard that when it comes to your period and breastfeeding anything is normal.  Mine is all over the place, here today and gone for a month.  Weird.  I'd see my OBGYN is I was you, just to be safe.  But I bet it's normal, just your body trying to get back into a groove.

That's too many. Are you on the minipill? It's a known problem with that form of birth control, and I would change.
