Hi ladies, so my daughter is 15 weeks old and for the 2 weeks after the postpartum bleeding (postpartum bleeding lasted 3 weeks) I was formula feeding so I got my normal period.

Since I have been EBF and haven't had a period. Just this weekend (15 weeks later) I started to spot brown and have been for 3 days.

What were your experience with AF after your baby and while EBF?

Thanks =) in advance

I had af after a few months but I think it's because my supply was low

Af is so funky while bfing. This has been my experience...

We have been bfing since birth. Bled till around 4 weeks pp. At ten weeks pp I got my first pp period. It lasted 6/7 days and then 3 weeks later I got my next period. Thats exactly how things happened for about 5 months then my period lasted eight days. Then three weeks later another normal period. Then this last month I was 6 days late and had a normal period. When I first started getting af I had brown spotting in between periods.

Its really odd to me because since my first day of AF I had an increase to the point where I leaked all over the bed and my pillow LOL

I haven't had a real AF yet. Baby is 6 months. I had pink discharge 2 weeks ago. It was twice when I wiped and that was it.

Not sure what happened or if it meant something. *shrug* time will tell.

I had my son Sept '11. Postpartum lasted 6 weeks. Got period in Dec. My cycles have been 33, 35, 38, and 42 days. My period is 6 days(usually 7) and I don't get crampy at all. He's 8 months.
