No advice.  I stopped my bleeding around 4 weeks then had an additional week at 7 weeks.  I ebf and didn't get my AF back until 15 months pp.

I think anything within 6 weeks is considered normal.

Could it be that you're doing too much at once?

Could be your period. My first two sons I started right after my pp bleeding stopped.

Called my ob. He said since im bf its normal to bleed on and off until 8 weeks. If it becomes heavier than a cycle then call back

 I had a c-section with both kids, with DS1 I didn't stop bleeding until 5 weeks PP, and with DS2 I stopped around 2 weeks, and had unusual bleeding until 10 weeks PP ( I was on 2 types of birth control to stop it)
