It could still be some postpartum bleeding--that is what happended to my SIL--she visited us 7 weeks after her baby was born and she had some bleeding.  But to be sure, you can ask your DOC

Yes, I think that is normal if you are not breastfeeding.

Very normal if you aren't breastfeeding that's when I usually get mine. I usually bleed for 4 weeks. Stop for about 3 to 4 then bleed again! Congrats on the baby btw!

I breastfeed my son for a year, but I still got my peiod 6 weeks after he was bornn and had monthly periods consistantly after that.  Doctor said it was nothing to worry about but was surprised to hear I was still breastfeeding.

Yes very normal nothing to worry about I didnt get a period until I stopped breastfeeding and that will be why yours has come back so soon if you were still breastfeeding you probably wouldnt have a period yet.

I breastfed my daughter exclusively, and still started my period when she was only 2 mos., so I guess there is really aa range of normal.
