post partum bleeding

I'm just wondering how long you breast feeding mommas bleed after haveing your little ones. Mine is 1 month and 1 day and I'm still bleeding. I thought a few times that it might stop but then at some point during the day it comes back. I had to have a c-section if that matters. It's not as heavy as it was and like I said some days it's 'almost' not there. But regardless of flow every day for the past month I've been bleeding and I'm getting pretty sick of it. Is this normal or how long should I expect it to last?

average pp bleeding is 6 weeks but it can last up to 8 or more weeks. Ive had two c-sections and it usually lasts about 1 and a half months for me.

On and off for 7 weeks! It kept fooling me and would go away for a day or two and come back

Mine was about 4 wks, but I had a day of bleeding (totally out of the blue!) at 6 wks PP. After that, nothing at all. Everyone is different.

This was me. I got a little 'surprise' each time right after my 6wk appt.

Yeah, I figured it had to do w/the pap smear, etc. ;)
