How long until this bleeding stops! (After labor)

I had my baby girl on May 2nd and I know it hasn't been THAT long, but I'm just wondering when it's supposed to stop??? This is my first baby so I have no idea

It is different for everyone. Some stop a week or two later and some will go to six to eight weeks.

I only bled for a week or two, but I had a c-section at 28 weeks... not sure if it made a difference.

OMG!! I didn't even think of that!!!! I have been so excited for a fall baby rather than ANOTHER winter baby, it will still be pretty warm in the day time.... that doesn't sound fun!

It's different for everyone. I bled for over a month. I felt it was cleansing though. Not too sure if I'm going to feel that way this time since it will be in the summer. lol I cannot imagine wearing a big huge mattress between my legs AND shorts. Ha! That's going to look "so hot." (:

For me, heavy bleeding for 2.5 weeks, then another 2-2.5 weeks of light/spotting. It was so irritating.
I hate wearing pads anyways, so it was extra uncomfortable.
I was so glad when I got cleared to wear tampons again at my 6 week pp appt.
