when did you have you first period after you had your baby? I had my dd three weeks ago today, and i bled for about 2 weeks, and then it stopped, now all the sudden im bleeding again a week later. Its just like a normal period that i had before. Just wondering. After my son i breastfed and didnt bleed after one week, and didnt have a period til a month before i got pregnant with dd. Can you have a period this soon after having a baby? Sorry if this seemed everywhere, im feeding my dd....oh by the way she is ff not bf

With some of my kids, i got my period right after the post partum bleeding stopped, other times it took a couple months. The longest was seven months post partum.

Have you been moving a lot? Sometimes if you automatically go back to doing all you use to do it will cause you to bleed again even after two weeks you still need to take it easy! But talk to your Dr or midwife and ask them they might want to check you out!!

I bf DD and didn't get a period till she was 15 months old but my DS who I couldn't nurse(long story) my monthly resumed 3 months PP. Everyone and every pregnancy is different. Congratulations on your LO.

I would think it was a period given the formula. When I weaned my third baby, i got my period the next week.

Mine came the month after I had my son and has been coming regularly since then. I was exclusively breastfeeding too.

I think anything within 6 weeks is considered PP bleeding still.

I always get mine back between 15-16 months (I breastfeed)
